For Christmas this year we surprised our kids and drove to Colorado to visit my parents. I thought for sure my 6 year old would figure it out because he's pretty knowledgeable about geography and he can read, so I figured once we hit Denver and signs started popping up all bets were off. Turns out though that Minecraft turns you into a Zombie that loses all sense of time and direction and glues your face to a screen for 6 hours straight. Seriously interesting
Anyways, the kids were completely shocked and excited when we got there. One of the first things I did was open the refrigerator, because that's the polite way for a house guest to enter a home. (I hope you learned that in Martha 101.) A can of Pillsbury orange sweet rolls stared at me from the top shelf and I immediately knew my brother was there. That kid eats orange rolls like no tomorrow. Ever since he was in high school he's baked them on Saturday morning and eaten at least half a can. Orange rolls will forever remind me of him.
We had a great Christmas with my family but I have been craving orange rolls ever since. I adapted these from my basic cinnamon roll recipe and they turned out great. They are so soft and so orangy. Next time I may use a non-cream cheese frosting just because I feel like orange rolls need a less tangy/sweeter frosting, but that's just a personal preference.
Happy last day of January!
Can I get a "Hallelujah"?
