Orange Knots

Growing up, my mom always made Pillsbury Orange Sweet Rolls for breakfast on the weekends. To this day I love baking these little guys as a quick breakfast and they are just as good reheated later.

Later, she passed on an Orange Roll with Citrus Glaze recipe that is delicious and uses real orange zest in the glaze! Thanks mom!


12 thawed, cold rolls (I used Rhodes Rolls from the freezer section at the grocery store)
1 medium orange rind
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp. melted butter
3 tbsp. orange juice
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

1. Mix orange rind with sugar
2. Roll each roll into a 9" rope
3. Tie rope in a loose knot
4. Roll each knot in melted butter, then in sugar/rind mix
5. Place on large sprayed baking sheet
6. Cover with plastic wrap, let them set until they double in size (1-2 hours)
7. Remove wrap, bake 15-20 minutes
8. Remove from baking sheet and place on cooling rack
9. Brush with citrus glaze while still warm
