These are great rolls to serve at a brunch or even with dinner. They have mouthwatering flavor. This recipe was found on the KSL-TV cooking show website. To reduce fat content to 1 gram per roll, reduce butter to 2 tbsp. They will be slightly chewier, but still good.

I made these just as written and while they did turn out beautifully and tasted good, they were a little to "yeasty" for my taste. I think I would have prefered a denser roll. My family enjoyed these, though, and I will be making them again.

I just read Murder on a Bad Hair day in which orange rolls were featured. I was intrigued and had to try it. I halved the recipe and threw it all in the breadmaker. It worked a treat. The recipe is great. However, a word of warning to all Brits - this isn't a savoury roll. We couldn't get our head around eating something this sweet as part of a meal. The kids finished them off as a cake. I left the glaze off some and they were more to my taste.
