It is fall and that of course means it’s time for cinnamon rolls and pumpkin rolls. However, there is a bakery in Provo that sells the most delicious orange and raspberry rolls you have ever had! You may just have to put away your cinnamon for a day and give these rolls a try. They are spongy, sweet and have a frosting and filling you want to eat by the spoonful. Since I can’t go to Provo and get these rolls on a regular basis I was determined to come up with a version that would satisfy my craving, and I think I came pretty close! These Citrus Rolls and Raspberry Rolls are a fun, different twist on an old time favorite. Serve these for breakfast, dessert or at a family brunch or special occasion. They are completely scrumptious!

  1. For the dough, put the warm milk, sugar and yeast into your mixer and mix for a minute until
  2. combined. Let the yeast grow until foamy and bubbly (about 5-10
  3. minutes). Then add the eggs, butter, flour, and salt and combine until
  4. smooth and mixted together. Add the orange and lemon zest and extract into the dough. Mix the dough for another 3-5 minutes. Let the dough sit in the bowl until it has
  5. doubled in size (about 1 1/2 hours). When it has doubled, put a small
  6. amount of flour on the counter and pour the dough onto the counter.
  7. Frosting: While the dough is rising, make the frosting. In a bowl, with an electric mixer, whip together the cream cheese and butter. Beat on high for 3-5 minutes, or until it becomes light yellow in color and is nice and fluffy. Add the juice of an orange, the zest, dash of salt and continue to beat. Once smooth, add the powdered sugar one cup at a time until the frosting is light and fluffy. Spread the frosting over the rolls once they have come out of the oven and cooled for 5 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
