      Everyone loved these. The dough was very easy to roll out. I made the dough exactly as written and they were wonderful. I found that when I cut them some of the cinnamon mixture fell out, so next time I will probably mix the cinnamon with the softened butter and sugar and then spread it on the dough. I ran out of orange zest for the glaze so I added a little orange extract. Thanks for a great recipe.

      Loved them! I doubled the recipe and used organic oranges for both the zest and juice in the icing. Delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      These rolls were delicious! I loved the orange zest in the biscuity rolls, and the cinnamon-orange sugar filling was great. I would say that my glaze came out a little to orangey for me, but I don't blame the recipe. I decided to add a 1/2 tsp of orange extract to the glaze, with fresh orange juice for the rest of the liquid. I think it was the extract that made the orange taste too strong. Next time I think I'll stick to the original recipe. In spite of this small critique, no one had anything but compliments for these rolls at our Easter brunch. I would suggest them to anyone.
