I love having freshly made baked goods for weekend breakfasts but I do not like putting them together so early in the morning. I’m really not above taking help where I can get it. These breakfast rolls from Pillsbury (from one of their magazines) are perfect ~ super easy to put together and they taste really fresh. I love citrus so these worked for me.
I would suggest that you take them off the pan as soon as you can otherwise they will glue to it and it will be impossible to get them off. Pouring some hot water in your pan and letting it soak will get the glaze off if it hardens.
Orange Crescent Rolls
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp grated orange peel
3 tbsps fresh orange juice
2 (8 oz) can Pillsbury Recipe Creations dough (or crescent roll dough)
Heat oven to 375º.
Spray a 12 inch round pizza pan with cooking spray.
In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter grated orange peel, and orange juice and cook over medium heat until sugar has melted and mixture is bubbly. Set aside.
Take out the dough and leave it unrolled. Cut each roll into 12 pieces (Cut in half, cut each half in half, then cut in thirds). Arrang ethe slices on the greased pizza pan. Spoon the brown sugar mixture over the rolls.
Bake for 13-15 minutes (Mine took a bit longer but yours may not so keep and eye on it) until golden brown. Remove from pan with a pancake turner and serve warm.
Makes 24 rolls.
