      These are wonderful! Not too sweet, perfect for breakfast. I had a bit of trouble with the rising times - they took much longer to rise than indicated in the recipe. But still - they did rise, and they baked up well. The only change I made was to omit the nuts and use dried cranberries in place of the raisins. The dough was easy to make and easy to handle. Great roles, S'kat!

      These were great, S'kat! I made them several months ago and froze them before baking and after forming them. I thawed mostly in the fridge, then let them rise on the counter and added the orange glaze just before baking. I used a 6-inch cake pan, though, since hte rolls looked so tiny. Next time, I'd use at least an 8-inch pan; the recipe doesn't specify but 6-inch was WAY too small, although they were still terrific and I LOVE the orange glaze! thanks for posting!
