Sour Cream Orange Rolls

Hi friends!  It's Amy J. with one last BEST EVER sweet roll recipe.  These are my mother's Sour Cream Orange Sweet Rolls.  These orange rolls are deadly delish!  Hence the reason we make them only a few times a year.  Every October and April, our church holds a world-wide general conference…our favorite weekends of the year!  Several traditions swirl around our house during these general conference weekends….but… the MOST POPULAR…THE ALL-TIME FAVORITE…are these Sour Cream Orange Rolls and our Caramel Bottom Cinnamon Rolls.  And yes, we make both flavors.  Please understand, making two different types of sweet rolls takes extra effort.  In the past we have tried to name one or the other the all time favorite sweet roll, but we have come to an impasse.  We simply cannot decide between the two…so WE MAKE BOTH!  Here's the recipe so you can make them too.




My mom used to make these orange rolls and these have been a favorite family treat ever since I can remember.













This recipe uses our BEST ROLL DOUGH RECIPE EVER!  Click the button below for the recipe:









Sour Cream Orange Rolls




Sugar/Zest Mixture:



You can use any oranges you like.  Mandarin oranges pack an awesome orange punch!






*Mix sugar with orange zest until combined and sugar looks orange.  Set aside.






*Take half of dough recipe above and roll out to the size of a jelly roll pan (11X15).  Spread with softened butter.  Sprinkle with sugar/orange zest mixture. 






Roll dough up horizontally into a long log. 






Slice 20 slices…each about ¾ inch.






Place in greased jelly roll pan…4 across and 5 down.  Cover with greased plastic wrap…(I spray mine with Pam).  Let rise until double, about 30 minutes (depending on the room temperature). Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.  Cool slightly and drizzle with Sour Cream Orange Glaze. 





Sour Cream Orange Glaze:




Place sugar, fresh orange juice, sour cream, and butter in heavy sauce pan.






Bring to boil.  Boil 3 minutes. 






Cool slightly and drizzle over warm orange rolls.  Dive into rich chewy velvety orange HEAVEN! 






HOLY COW THESE ARE AWESOME!  Take some to your neighbor so you don’t eat the whole pan!
