Gram's Orange Pull-apart Rolls

24 frozen dinner rolls (Rhodes), thawed (make sure they aren't pre-cooked rolls!)

2 c. sugar

Zest of 2 large oranges

1 stick butter, melted



Preheat oven to 350*F. Butter 9x13 pan. Combine sugar and orange zest, stir well. Melt butter on stovetop in small pot. Cut dinner rolls into thirds, about 1/2 way through cutting rolls, sprinkle sugar/orange zest mixture over rolls in pan, then cut up remaining 1/2 of rolls, wedging pieces into any visible spaces and making sure a roll is in each corner of pan. Pour melted butter over roll pieces. Set aside (on top of the warming oven in a good place, just make sure all burners are off and NOT hot!), cover with towel and allow to raise til double in size. Place in preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until center rolls are done.


Break apart and enjoy!
