These Orange and Cream Cheese Rolls are perfect for the spring. They are moist, buttery, and sweetened with the amazing taste of oranges.


  • 1 Box Hot Roll Mix
  • 1 c. hot water
  • 2 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. orange zest
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter, divided and room temperature
  • 1 1/2 c. Orange Marmalade
  • 12 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. orange zest
  • pinch of salt


  1. In a large bow, combine the flour and yeast in the box into a large bowl. Add the hot water, egg, orange zest, and butter. Knead the ingredients until they form a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and turn to a bowl and set in a warm place [ See instructions on box if you need more instructions] for 30 minutes or longer. Once the dough has risen, divide into two balls and onto a floured surface.
  2. Preheat to 350 Degrees and spray a 9X13 casserole pan with baking spray.
  3. Cover one ball of dough with plastic wrap until ready to use. Roll the other ball out into rectangular shape. Spread 2 tablespoon of softened butter evenly on the dough. Next, spread 3/4 cup of orange marmalade on top of the buttered dough. Roll tightly into a log. Using a sharp knife, cut into 1 inch rolls and place into the baking dish. Repeat the same process with the other ball of dough. Cover once again with plastic wrap and set in warm place and let proof for 30 minutes.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown. Set aside and allow to cool. In a separate bowl, blend cream cheese until smooth, add powdered sugar, salt, and orange zest. Mix with hand held until smooth. Spread evenly on top of rolls and serve.
