Easy Orange Cinnamon Rolls
If you love cinnamon rolls, then you'll love waking up to the smell of these easy orange cinnamon rolls baking in the oven.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
  • 1 7.5 Ounce Can Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk Biscuit Dough
  • ¾ Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter (1 Tbl melted & 1 Tbl solid for greasing the pan)
  • ¾ Cup Powdered Sugar
  • ⅛ Cup Cream Cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Juice (preferably fresh squeezed)
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • Flour
  • Orange Zest (from ½ orange)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
  2. Lightly grease and 8″x8″ baking pan with butter and set aside.
  3. In a bowl mix brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
  4. In another bowl mix powdered sugar, cream cheese, orange juice and milk. Mix to combine. Try to eliminate as many lumps as possible and set aside.
  5. Separate the biscuits. Lightly flour work surface and roll out the biscuits to ⅛″ thickness. (Shape should be slightly oval to rectangular) Use a sharp knife to slice dough in half lengthwise. Cover dough with generous tablespoon of brown sugar cinnamon mixture. Starting with one corner from the long end, snugly roll the dough and pinch the remaining corner to seal the roll. Place closely together in buttered baking pan.
  6. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes. After 25 minutes, start watching tops of rolls. The tops should turn a nice golden brown and the sugar and cinnamon should be mostly melted.
  7. Remove pan from oven and drizzle with powdered sugar orange glaze. Top with grated orange zest.
  8. Let rolls sit for 15 minutes to cool a bit and make it easier to serve.
The rolls will only fill about ½ of the pan.
