Orange Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

Are you looking for a special dinner roll to serve for Holiday events? I’ve found just the thing. These Orange Buttermilk Dinner Rolls are easy to make and taste great.  They have a hint of orange zest which adds a delicious burst of flavor.

If you’re pressed for time, you can make these rolls the day before. I made them for a special luncheon at my church recently. I knew I wouldn’t have time to prepare the rolls the day of the event, so I baked them the day before, wrapped them in foil and just reheated them when it was time to serve them. They were great!

Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add flour to yeast mixture; mix on low speed with a dough hook until a soft, elastic dough forms (about 5 minutes). Dough will be sticky. I used a dough whisk to mix the ingredients.

Then I kneaded the dough by hand for about 8 minutes.

Working with 1 piece at a time, roll dough into a ball by cupping your hand and pushing against dough and surface while rolling. Arrange dough balls 2 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
