Put the rolls in a greased baking pan.  Let rise until double in bulk again.

Bake in a preheated 375 oven for 20 minutes.

Make the glaze while the rolls are baking.

Glaze

Cook 1 cube butter with 1 cup brown sugar until it boils 1 minute.  Take off the stove and beat in the juice from 1 orange, and 1 cup sifted powdered sugar.  As the rolls come out of the oven, spoon on the glaze.

Optional Cinnamon Rolls

After the dough is rolled out, butter the dough except for a 1 inch strip on one of the longer sides, so you can seal the roll. Sprinkle cinnamon-sugar (1 cup brown sugar mixed with 2 teas. cinnamon) only on the butter.  Continue like for Orange Rolls.
