What was the most memorable part of holiday meals for you as a child? At Easter, and only at Easter, my grandma made orange rolls. I looked forward to the sweet rolls for weeks in advance, dreaming of the citrus-flecked glaze. Is it any wonder that the rolls were the highlight of the menu for me?
When I spotted an orange roll recipe from Red Star Yeast, I dropped everything and headed to the kitchen. At first bite, I deemed these rolls nearly identical to my grandma’s rolls. The soft and tender pillows are simply irresistible warm from the oven, fragrant with fresh orange filling and frosting. Make a double batch for your family and start a sweet new tradition.

•First rise = 35 minutes; second rise = 20 minutes
•I used unflavored floss to slice the rolls cleanly and arranged 9 rolls in a 9-inch round pan; the remaining 5 rolls baked in another small baking dish.
•I baked my rolls at 350°F for 20 minutes, until golden. I used an offset spatula to spread frosting over the rolls warm from the oven, then let them cool for 20 minutes before serving.
