Orange Sweet Rolls

On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days.  Here is recipe 65: Orange Sweet Rolls!

My husband likes the Orange Sweet Rolls that you can buy in the tube at the grocery store.  They are pretty good, but I was sure that I could find a recipe that would knock his socks off.

Orange Sweet Rolls

I found the base recipe in Ree Drummond’s newest cookbook.  She knows how to do sweet rolls well.  I adapted the recipe to use my bread machine and I changed up the filling a tiny bit by adding cinnamon.  These were really yummy and the citrus flavor made for a refreshing light roll.
