“A recipe from the 1950s to enhance refrigerated rolls.”
20 rolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grate the orange rind into the sugar and mix well. Melt the butter in a small microwave proof bowl, using the microwave.
  2. Open the tube of rolls and roll each biscuit into a ball. Dip the ball into the butter and then roll in the orange-sugar mixture.
  3. Bake refrigerated rolls as directed on tube. Use a pan size that will hold them all. Rolls may also be piled into a small tube pan.
  4. Variations:
  5. 1. Replace orange sugar with cinnamon sugar using 1 tablespoon cinnamon to 3/4 cup sugar. This makes enough for 2 packages.
  6. 2. Make a Butter Ball Coffee Cake: Use 2 tubes of biscuits. You do not need to roll them into balls but dip them in the melted butter (1/4 cup) and the flavored sugar (cinnamon sugar or orange sugar - 1/2 cup). Place 15 overlapped biscuits around the outer part of a 9-inch round pan (greased). Overlap 5 biscuits in center. Pour remaining butter over all and sprinkle with 3/4 cup chopped nuts. Bake 25-30 minutes. Allow to stand 5 minutes before serving.
