Easy Overnight Citrus Scented Sweet Rolls
This year we are celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve with my parents, before they fly overseas to meet up with my brothers. Although the whole family won’t be together, we will be thinking of everyone while eating these rolls!
I love this recipe because you can make the rolls the day before, store in the fridge overnight, then pop in the oven once you wake up in the morning. No need to wake up early to watch the dough rise.
For the filling, you’re supposed to spread the butter and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. I tried mixing the butter and sugar together first, then spreading – which turned out to be much more difficult.
Then roll the sweet roll dough into a tight roll, starting at the shorter end.
Divide the dough into thirds with a serrated knife or dental floss. Then divide each third into thirds, for a total of 9 rolls.
When you’re ready to place the rolls into the pan, take the end of the dough in each spiral and wrap underneath. This will help the rolls stay closely spiraled as they rise and then bake.
Place rolls into a 9×9 glass pan. Then tightly cover and store in fridge overnight.
In the morning, all you have to do is place the pan into a cold oven. Then turn on the oven to 400 degrees. Once the oven reaches 400 degrees, set the timer for 15-20 minutes. The rolls are done when the tops are golden brown.
Then serve drizzled with an orange glaze.
