No Rise Super Quick Cinnamon or Orange Rolls


For the dough:
3/4 cup cottage cheese (4% milk fat)
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 Tbs real butter, melted
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
9 oz. (2 cups) flour; more for rolling
1 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. table salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda

Cinnamon Roll Filling:
1/2 C (1 stick) real butter at room temp, divided
3/4 C packed brown sugar
1 T cinnamon

Cinnamon Roll Glaze:
1 C powdered sugar
2 T butter, melted
2 T milk or cream
1 t vanilla extract

Orange Roll Filling:
4T butter, softened
1/2 C sugar
zest from one orange

Orange Roll Glaze:
2/3 C powdered sugar
1 T melted butter
2 T Orange juice


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a food processor, combine the cottage cheese, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla. Process until smooth, about 10 seconds. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda and pulse in short bursts just until the dough clumps together (don’t over-process). The dough will be very soft, probably softer than you’re used to. Don’t add anymore flour! Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead a few times just until smooth. Roll the dough into a rectangle, about 12×15 inches.

Now put your filling on. Roll dough in a long log and slice by sliding floss under roll and crossing above until it slices through. Place rolls in greased pyrex or ceramic pan and bake for 20 -25 minutes.
