Orange Glazed Crescent Rolls

Once in awhile I stumble upon a recipe that I HAVE to try...IMMEDIATELY. This was one of those times.

I received an ad in the mail for a Southern Living Cookbook. I don't need another cookbook (I have PLENTY as it is) but I knew they always put a few recipes in their cookbook ads so I flipped through and found this:

Yes, those are coffee cup rings on the page...

Though the recipe is for making your own orange-y crescent rolls from scratch, I had 2 containers of plain crescent rolls in the fridge that needed to be used up before their expiration date.  So I baked those up...

 Then just made the orange glaze part of the recipe and poured it over the rolls. Since I only made 16 rolls, I had a LOT of extra glaze in the pan.

So YUMMY! Even The Boy - who doesn't care for much of anything citrus flavored, loved them. I'll have to try the entire recipe sometime, but this was a great spur-of-the-moment treat! Here's the glaze recipe (couldn't find it on the Southern Living website to link to):

Orange Glaze

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 TBS orange juice (I used 1 TBS concentrate since that's all I had on hand and didn't want to make a whole batch of OJ)
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
Combine everything in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil, stirring constantly, 3 minutes. Pour glaze over rolls and serve. (These were best while still warm from the oven)
