Orange Sweet Rolls
For the last two weeks, we have had family visiting us. It has been fun as they have tried to see everything (well, the major things) there is to see in DC, and enjoyed every minute of it (I hope.) It is a well-known fact that Aaron's family could subsist on a permanent diet of sugar—in any form.
Since it is their last day with us, I decided to make them something fittingly sweet yet not so sweet that Aaron or I could not eat it. And I found this recipe by Erin on her website Lemon Sugar—the perfect recipe for these beautiful, moist, sugary, citrus-y Orange Sweet Rolls. Now, if you are not a fan of citrus, you can always turn these into cinnamon rolls instead. But you should give the oranges a shot.
It is a bit more time-consuming than my recipes of late, but, oh, it is well worth the time and effort. They turned out beautifully and my house smelled of warm citrus goodness!
I did not alter the recipe one bit, followed it faithfully, and they turned out just as Lemon Sugar promised—perfect! Thank you, Erin, for this recipe that is bound to become a family favorite.
