Do you like Oranges and recipes made with them?  You will love these sweet 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.  

Orange Crescent Rolls

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, Carl, grew up in Winter Haven, Florida in 1930’s & 40’s.  

He loved oranges and anything with oranges in it.  My dad told 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.

Whisk Your Glaze

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.

  5. i loved learning more about your dad here and was totally picturing him with those oranges. Seriously wonderful memories and recipe, too. Pinning to try and sharing, too 😉

    • 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.
