Orange Pan Rolls

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


4 rolls

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


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  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 zest; cut in shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened.
  2. Divide dough into fourths. With floured hands, roll each piece of dough into a ball; dip in butter, then in sugar mixture. Evenly space in a greased 9-in. round baking pan. Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
