Orange Rolls - Easy and delicious

I love the color orange. It's been my favorite since I was a child when one of my brothers gave me one of his Hot Wheels.  Do kids still play with those?  Well, it was orange and it was a corvette!

That one act of kindness had a HUGE affect on me because corvette's are my dream car.  I wish that I had a real corvette.  An orange one, just like they used to have in the 70's.

Instead I have something different for you today...orange rolls!!  YUM!  and this recipe is easy and delicious. I think you will like a lot. Almost as much as I like orange corvettes.
