Ingredients

  • 1/2 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1 (11-oz.) can refrigerated French bread dough
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Beat cream cheese, light brown sugar, and orange zest at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Unroll French bread dough onto a lightly floured surface. Spread cream cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Sprinkle with granulated sugar. Gently roll up dough, starting at 1 long side. Cut into 11 (1 1/4-inch) slices. Place slices in a lightly greased 8-inch round cake pan. Brush top of dough with melted butter. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden. Stir together powdered sugar and orange juice in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over hot rolls. Serve immediately.
