Orange Pan Rolls Recipe

A HINT of orange in the dough makes these rolls refreshingly different. Similar in texture to a biscuit, they bake to a beautiful golden brown. I make them anytime I want something warm from the oven to accompany a meal. —Jackie Riley Holland, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine sugar and nutmeg; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cream of tartar and salt. Add orange peel; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened.
