Cinnamon/Orange Sweet Rolls


What better way to start your morning than by licking off delicious, gooey cinnamon or orange sweet roll glaze from your fingers? Not many that I can think of! This recipe, provided by Tania, was our Christmas breakfast this past year, and it was totally scrumptious! Thanks, Mom, for sharing it!

Below is the basic recipe. Click here for the gooey Cinnamon Roll Topping recipe, and here for the Honey Orange Rolls recipe.

Basic Sweet Roll Recipe


  • 2 ½ cups warm water
  • ⅔ c. dry milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tbls yeast
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 6 -7 cups flour.


Sprinkle yeast over water to disolve.

Add sugar, shortning, milk, salt and eggs.

Add flour and mix until dough forms ball. Place in a greased container and cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Allow to Rise double. Punch down dough.

Form rolls and let rise double. Bake @350° until lightly browned.

*For cinnamon rolls I like to roll the dough into a large rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Cover generously with brown sugar and sprinkle heavily with cinnamon. Roll from short end and seal edges. Cut carefully with a length of thread or dental floss. Lay the thread under and perpendicular to the roll of dough so as to cut 1½ inch pieces. Cross and pull the ends.
