…Good things like orange glaze brushed on a warm sweet roll!
Of course Orange Twists are best when they are still warm and dripping with glaze! If you know you are going to have a super busy morning you can always make them the night before and warm them up for a few seconds before serving them. You are going to be coming back to this recipe morning after morning! These cute little knots are that good!
