Orange Rolls

Now don't knock this until you try it. There is no yeast in these rolls. The first ingredient may turn you off, but really! I'm giving you the same advice the website I got this recipe from gave me and I am so glad I took their advice. These rolls are SO good. These rolls are SO easy - no waiting around for the dough to rise a couple times. These rolls were the perfect start to our Thanksgiving morning.

Orange Rolls
3/4 c cottage cheese (don't use fat free and again, don't mock, just try it)
1/3 c buttermilk
1/4 c sugar
4 T butter, melted
1 t vanilla extract
2 c flour; more for rolling
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/4 t baking soda

Orange Filling:
4 T butter, softened (I melted it)
1/2 C sugar
zest from one orange

Orange Glaze:
2/3 C powdered sugar
1 T melted butter
2 T Orange juice (I used all the juice from the orange I zested)

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray cooking dish - a 9" pie dish or 9"x9" casserole work well.
*Combine cottage cheese, buttermilk, sugar, butter, and vanilla in FOOD PROCESSOR (a must have for this recipe - a blender may work.) Mix until smooth.
*Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt). Add to the food processor. Just give it a couple quick pulses to create a clump-y dough.
*Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a rectangle. Spread the combined filling ingredients on the dough. Roll up like cinnamon rolls, slice the dough, and place into baking dish.

*Bake for 20-25 minutes - until tops are golden.

*Take out of oven, allow to sit for 5 minutes before covering with the combined glaze ingredients.

*Enjoy! You will regret the mocking.
