Tips and Tricks For Perfect Homemade Orange Rolls:
- It is important to always make sure that you have fresh active yeast.
- I always activate my yeast by placing it in water or milk that is around 110 degrees, with a little sugar. The sugar helps the yeast rise.
- Another little trick is to make sure that your dough is in a warm place to rise.
- I also like to cover the dough with a piece of plastic wrap that is sprayed with cooking spray so that it doesn’t stick to the plastic wrap.
