I just enjoy it. Thank you.

I made these rolls yesterday and they are delicious! I did add some maple flavoring to the dough and to the filling plus I added some whipping cream (not whipped) to the filling because I thought it was not runny enough and I did not want it to turn hard after they were baked. The recipe is definitely a keeper! Make sure that you put the rolls in a deeper pan so that the filling does not bubble over on to your oven.

I used to have what I believe is this recipe in a land o lakes cookbook I purchased while in line at the Supermarket. I loved this recipe, I loaned my recipe to a neighbor who moved away and never returned it to me. Has been looking for a copy of it ever since and can not locate it. Hope this is it!

I started making both of these recipes to give as gifts to neighbors. For those who like nuts, I sprinkle 3/4 cup pecans over the Caramel sauce in the bottom of the pan and add about 1/4 cup ground pecans to the filling. For the Glazed Orange Rolls I add two tablespoons orange zest to the dough (I like a stronger orange flavor). Neighbors (young and old) love these rolls, I love these rolls. I also make the Glazed Orange rolls as well.

Whenever I make these, all you hear are the "oohs" and "aahs".
