Roll up like cinnamon rolls. Cut in 1 inch slices. Place in greased muffin tins. Let rise (double). Bake for 7 to 10 minutes at 400 degrees. (10-12? until starting to brown.) Makes 24 rolls.
Glaze: (Doc’s Mother’s hand written recipe)
Juice an orange (start with ½). Mix powdered sugar into the juice until a little thick, but not as thick as frosting. Pour glaze over rolls when they come out of oven.
