Orange Marmalade Rolls

I think I like these rolls more than cinnamon rolls. With each bite you get the subtle taste of orange marmalade and the sweetness of the orange-flavored glaze.  If you like a tarter orange flavor you can omit the sugar in the filling.

To make these, any sweet dough recipe will work. This day I used the same breadmaker dough that I use to make cinnamon rolls. You can also use the bread dough that is found in the grocery frozen food section.  After the first rise, roll the dough to an approximate 9x12-inch rectangle.  Spread softened butter over dough, sprinkle with granulated sugar.  Spread approximately 1 cup orange marmalade over the top.

Starting at the long side, tightly roll into a jelly roll.  You may have some marmalade "ooze" out.  Scrape this off as it will be hard (and messy!) to seal the edges of the roll.
Once rolled, pinch and seal the seam.  Cut into 1-inch slices. Place in buttered baking dish.  Let rise until doubled in size. (Or refrigerate overnight.  In the morning, let rolls come to room temp and bake as normal).  Bake in preheated 375-degree oven for 20-25 minutes (cover with foil if they are getting too brown). Let cool slightly before frosting.

As it's just two of us at home we don't need a dozen sweet rolls tempting us.  I divided them in two pans and gave one to my Mom.  We were both able to bake our rolls on a leisurely Sunday morning!
To make the glaze, combine confectioners sugar and orange juice until you get a spreadable consistency. Spread over slightly-warm rolls, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy!
