Orange Cinnamon Rolls Tips
Can you use homemade dough instead of store-bought for this recipe?
You sure can! Frozen bread dough is a great time-saver for these orange cinnamon rolls, but you can go the extra mile and make your own. The from-scratch dough from our best-ever cinnamon rolls recipe
is a great place to start.
Where is a good place to let orange cinnamon rolls rise?
Yeast dough likes warm, humid spaces—above 75°F is ideal. If it's not summer and you don't feel like cranking up the heat, you can still get the perfect proof. An easy way to get bread dough to rise
is to create your own proofing chamber. To do this, pop your dough into the oven (make sure the oven is off) with a pan of simmering water. The heat and vapor from the water creates the perfect proofing environment.
Can you make orange cinnamon rolls ahead of time?
You can bake these rolls a day ahead and leave them unfrosted. To serve, pop them in a 325°F oven for 5-10 minutes—just enough to warm them up. Then top with frosting and serve! To freeze
these rolls, prep and shape them as directed but do not allow them to rise. Tightly cover them and freeze in a single layer in an airtight container for up to a month. To bake, thaw in the fridge overnight, bring to room temperature and allow to rise. Then bake according to the recipe and enjoy!—Lisa Kaminski, Taste of Home Editor
