Cranberries and orange juice make these rolls a delightful addition for your next luncheon.


24 Rhodes Yeast Dinner rolls, thawed but still cold
5 ounces dried cranberries
1/4 cup butter melted
1 cup granulated sugar (divided)
2/3 cup (6 ounces) cream cheese softened
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon each grated orange rind and lemon rind
1 cup powdered sugar
5 teaspoons fresh lemon juice



Press about 1 teaspoon cranberries into each thawed roll. Place rolls in a 9×13-inch sprayed baking pan.

Combine the butter, 1/2 cup sugar, cream cheese, and orange juice. Blend well and pour over the rolls. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise until double in size.

Combine 1/2 cup sugar, the rinds and any remaining cranberries. Remove wrap and sprinkle the mixture over the risen rolls. Bake immediately in preheated 350°F oven 30-40 minutes or until rolls in center are done. Cover with foil last 10-15 minutes to prevent over browning.

Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice and drizzle over rolls

    this seems to be the recipe i was looking for, it’s been several years since i’ve made it. can i make it ahead and then bake it in the morning?

      Thank you for your question! I think that would be fine to assemble it and bake it the morning. Or you could thaw your rolls and then assemble it the morning and then bake. I think it would work either way!

    Are the Rhodes rolls sold in Florida or only in the west?

      You should be able to find the rolls in Walmart. Sometimes they will only carry the White Bread Dough. But you can let the loaves thaw and form the dough into rolls and let them raise and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. You can get 12 Dinner size or 8 larger size rolls from one loaf of bread dough. But I do show some stores do carry the 36-count Dinner Rolls too. You can use our store locator here on our website or you can call our Customer Satisfaction department at 1-800-876-7333. Hope this helps you!
