Upside-Down Cranberry Orange Rolls

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Yield 6 servings


  • 1 package Rhodes AnyTime Orange Rolls (6 rolls)
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • orange cream cheese frosting packet (comes with the frozen orange rolls)


  1. Melt the butter with the brown sugar, orange zest, and fresh/frozen cranberries in a medium saucepan. Simmer until the berries burst and the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally; about 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in the dried cranberries. Allow to cool slightly (2 to 3 minutes).
  2. Remove the orange rolls from the foil pan and pour the cranberry sauce into the bottom. Place the orange rolls on top of the cranberry sauce and place the pan in a 350 degrees Fahrenheit oven.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown and baked through completely. Immediately invert the foil pan onto a large plate.
  4. Allow rolls to cool slightly before adding the frosting so it doesn't melt off completely. Warm the cream cheese packet (that came with the rolls) with your hands and drizzle it over the top of the rolls. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container up to 5 days.
