Making the Dough

Combine warm milk and yeast, then add melted butter, vanilla extract, sugar, eggs, orange juice, zest, and salt. Mix well.

Adding the Flour

Gradually add flour, one cup at a time, until the dough forms. It should be slightly sticky. Let it rise for an hour or two.

Creating the Filling

Prepare a cinnamon sugar mixture with orange zest. Roll out the dough, brush with melted butter, sprinkle with the sugar mixture.

Rolling and Slicing

Roll up the dough tightly, starting from one end. Slice the roll into equal portions, about twelve pieces in total.

Rising and Baking

Place the rolls close together in a greased baking pan. Let them rise again for 45 minutes, then bake until golden brown.

Whip together cream cheese, powdered sugar, orange zest, vanilla, and orange juice. Drizzle the glaze over the warm rolls.
