Cinnamon Orange Rolls

Happy Saturday, y’all! I made you breakfast!

…but not just any breakfast…

I slaved for hours in a hot kitchen making a bread dough…(well, maybe the breadmaker did that part).

Then I rolled the dough out and poured hot butter all over it. (I’m from the South, it’s just how we roll.)

I mixed up some cinnamon sugar and sprinkled it over the buttered dough.

Doesn’t that buttery cinnamon sugar just scream your name?


I rolled the dough and sliced it.


After those luscious rolls rose for an hour, I baked them.

I hand squeezed some oranges, so I could make you this sweet orange sauce…with lots of zest…


to pour over these…ooey, gooey warm and deliciously uh-mazing


cinnamon orange rolls.


MMMmmmm. You’re probably hungry now.


Make these…like now…go…GO!
