So, I'm giving in and sharing the Christmas recipes, even though Christmas is over. Seriously, it's not like you couldn't find other excuses or occasions to make some of theses things year round.
This is a nice easy recipe that my husband grew up on and asks me to make every year around Christmas. It's so easy because it uses frozen yeast rolls, not that you couldn't do home made bread dough but frozen dough is easy. Usually, we set out the rolls so they are shaped like a tree, because that's how my hubby says it's done, but this year I decided to get creative and made a wreath. The icing glaze had a lot more roll to cover up since the rolls are more spread out in the wreath which means more icing for everyone. And to make it seem like it could be relevant year round, I guess you could shape out a heart a for valentines or use blue sprinkles for the 4th of July.
Easy Sweet Rolls
- frozen yeast rolls (however many you need to make your family happy/fit on your pan
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 tablespoons orange juice
- colored sugar or sprinkles
- maraschino cherries
Lay out rolls in desired shape. Let rise and bake according to package instructions. Mix powdered sugar with enough orange juice to make a thin glaze. Brush glaze over warm rolls. Sprinkle with colored sugar and top each roll with a maraschino cherry.
