Don’t reach for the cinnamon, grab an orange instead and roll up these deliciously light treats! (Previously shared on PB&J Stories)
- 3 cups of flour
- 5 Tbsp. of sugar (this will be separated out)
- 4 tsp. of baking powder
- 4 Tbsp. shortening
- 1 cup of milk
- powdered sugar
- 1 orange
- 2 Tbsp. melted butter
Preheat over to 450 degrees. Zest the orange and combine it with the juice and 2 Tbsp. of sugar. I used small oranges so I zested two but used the juice of only one.
Sift/whisk together the flour, 3 Tbsp. of sugar, and baking powder before cutting in the shortening. Add the milk and mix until just combined. Turn out onto a counter lightly floured with powdered sugar and shape into a rectangle 1/2 an inch thick.
Spread the melted butter and then the orange mixture over the dough before rolling it up like a cinnamon roll.
Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices and beware, it may get messy.
Place in a well-sprayed or greased pan. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes. Bake in a hot over for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Serve with butter, and if you really like a lot of orange, marmalade. Makes 12-14 servings.
