I decided to try them. Yes, it is dark outside!!! I was trying to beat everyone up.
Preheat oven to 375°. Take 1⁄2 (8-oz.) package softened cream cheese, 1⁄4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar, and 11⁄2 tsp. orange zest
Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth.
Unroll 1 can refrigerated French bread dough onto a lightly floured surface.
Spread cream cheese mixture over dough, leaving a 1⁄4-inch border. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar.
Gently roll up dough, starting at 1 long side.
Cut into 11 (11⁄4-inch) slices.
Place slices in a lightly greased 8-inch round cake pan. Brush top of dough with 1 Tbsp. melted butter. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden.
Stir together 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp. orange juice in a small bowl and drizzle on top.
Now it would be great if I had continued to take pictures but guess what, I forgot to take a picture. I guess, I was hungry.
Courtesy of Southern LivingI liked them and think you could make some great variations; Cream cheese, sugar and pecans, butter, sugar and cinnamon for an easy classic cinnamon roll and maybe even change the orange to lemon.
I am going to try to put strawberry jam in the french bread, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces, brush with butter and sprinkle with sugar this weekend. I will let you know how it turns out.
