EXTREMELY FLAVORFUL ORANGE CRESCENT ROLLS

These Orange Crescent Rolls were such a hit at my house.  I recently saw a recipe for Orange Rolls from Southern Living Heirloom Recipe Cookbook.  These Southern Living Crescent Rolls were made from scratch.  After baking them, they added this delicious Orange Glaze all over the Crescent Rolls.  They sounded amazing, but who has time to make Crescent Rolls from scratch, especially in the mornings.  Since I blog about Easy Recipes that everyone can make quickly, I decided to use Pillsbury Crescent Rolls to make easy Orange Crescent Rolls.  I also blended some cream cheese and sugar together and stuffed the crescent rolls with cream cheese filling.  After baking them, I added this amazing Orange Glaze.  OH MY!  These rolls were not only super easy to make but an over the fence, out the park home run.  Amazing!  I will be making these Orange Crescent Rolls many, many more times.

My father grew up in Winter Haven, Florida in 1930’s & 40’s.  He loved oranges and anything with oranges in it.  He uses to tell me how he would walk through the orange grove barefooted to get to and from school.  He would always stop and eat an orange.   My father is no longer with us, but I still remember all his stories he shared about growing up in Florida.  Oranges were a big part of his life.  My father and most of his family worked at some point and time in the orange groves or the orange factories.  I inherited my dad love for oranges.  I love them, and everything made with oranges including these Out of the Park Super Easy Orange Crescent Rolls.

Be sure to whisk your glaze together and not just stir it.  When I got to the bottom of my pot of glaze, it was not mixed well.  It was still amazing!

    • Amanda,

      I was dreamy about these orange rolls recently. I am going to make them soon. The orange sauce is so yummy. Take time to mix the cream cheese well.
      Let me know what you think if you try them.

    • Audrey,

      I am so sorry I am just getting back to you. We were out of town visiting family. They actually live so far out and have no internet. Anyway, You can make the Orange Crescent Rolls up and place them in the refrigerator and bake them in the morning. When they come out of the oven, is when you add the sauce. They are amazing! I hope you tried them or you will try them soon.

      Blessings,
      Diane Roark

        • Audrey,

          I am so glad you made and enjoyed the Orange Crescent Rolls. They are one of my favorites too. I was just thinking today I wanted to try making them with a different sauce maybe blackberry or raspberry. I cannot wait to see how they turn out.

          Thank you so much for your support!
          Blessings,

  2. Diane, this is a best idea! I love your story about your dad and you really tied it all together perfectly with the recipe and nostalgia. Thank you for this, I am definitely going to make this one soon. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

    • Janine,

      My father pass away so young at age 58 and I can still remember some of his stories like he was sitting right here with me. I just wish my kids could have known him. He was away just before Carly was born. Carly is named after him. His name was Carl. She is now 23.

      These Orange Rolls are amazing! I truly love them.

      Blessings,
      Diane Roark
