Orange Cup Cinnamon Rolls

I love food that does "double duty" like my Wiggly Watermelon. This time, we used orange halves to make these adorable & quick cinnamon rolls! Aren't they fun?
They'd be a perfect "back to school" breakfast!
Orange Cup Cinnamon Rolls
Ingredients:
Oranges
Refrigerator Biscuits (the small kind)
Cinnamon
Sugar
Butter, melted
Cream Cheese Icing
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice oranges half.
Scoop out orange flesh, place in bowl to eat (or eat while you're cooking!:)). Pat orange halves with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
Open a can of biscuits and roll out on counter to about 5" diameter. Brush with melted butter.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, according to your taste.
Roll out a second biscuit, place on top and repeat the butter/sugar/cinnamon.
Starting at one end, roll up biscuits. Pinch sides to seal.
Look really adorable with your front tooth missing (optional)...
Place roll in a hollowed out orange cup. Repeat until you've made the desired amount of rolls.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-25 minutes, until rolls are golden brown (baking time will vary depending on the moisture in your oranges). Do not underbake! Make sure to take a fork and peek at the bottom of your rolls before removing from the oven. Frost with your favorite cream cheese icing (we even added a little orange juice, yummy!) and sprinkle with orange zest (optional). Enjoy!
