Orange Rolls

I’ve posted this recipe several different places: one being on the “old” blog I started last year. I’m obviously still working on importing all of my entires. In the meantime, this recipe MUST be accessible. I snapped a few pictures as I made them Sunday morning.
They are our greatest holiday food.
Just ask my midsection, whom I have begun to affectionately call “Bloatius Maximus.”

You will need:

4 cans of “pop can” biscuits
1 1/3 C. Sugar
2 cubes of butter
Juice from one orange
Grated rind of one orange

Preheat oven to 375.

Begin melting butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Medium, medium, medium. That’s the key word, see?

Once the butter is melted, add the sugar and whisk to combine. For the love of teflon, don’t use a wire whisk! If you don’t have teflon, good fer you. And wire’s away.

Am I spelling “teflon” right? Wrong?

Add the juice from one orange to the butter/sugar mixture. At this point, I take the lowly road and cheat. I never feel bad about it because I jump at any opportunity to BUY SIMPLY ORANGE. Just make sure you use high pulp to mask the counterfeit.

Add the grated orange peel to the mixture as well. If you’ve got a good zester, please use it. If you don’t, settle like I do. Did I spell “zester” right? Wrong?

Bring the butter/sugar/orange mixture to a boil.
Layer the pop can biscuits in a can on a slant. I always always double double this recipe because there’s never never enough.

After the sugar mixture comes to a boil, dump it over the top of the slanted biscuits. If you’re a good baker (and of course you are otherwise WHY would you be using pop can biscuits?), insert a fork between the slanted biscuits to let all of the orange juices get between them.

Bake them at 375 for 35 minutes or until browned on top. When you pull them out, invert them onto a platter.

Please enjoy these while they’re still warm. And please make these once a year at least. And please send me some.
