Orange Sweet Rolls with Cranberries and Walnuts

So you want to serve something warm and sweet and gooey to your family on Christmas morning, but you want the recipe to be quick and easy and you don't want to make the dough from scratch. What to do? What to do? Have I got the recipe for you! It starts with dinner rolls (yes dinner rolls!) and ends up being warm sweet rolls. Merry Christmas!

Orange Sweet Rolls with Cranberries and Walnuts
Makes one dozen

1 cup walnuts, coarsely choppes
1/3 cup dried creanberries
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
12 biscuites from 2 cans Pillsbury Homestyle biscuites
3/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp finely grated orange zest

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 325 degrees. Genrously coat a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.

Sprinkle walnuts and dried cranberries evenly over pan bottom. Mix sugar and cinnamon in bowl. Working one at a time, dip each biscuit into melted butter and then into cinnamon-sugar mixture. With long edge of pan facing you, arrange bisuits in three rows of four. Mix leftover butter and cinnamon-sugar mix, along with the orange zest; spread evenly over biscuits.

Bake until golden brown, 40 to 45minutes. Remove from oven; let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Invert onto serving platter, removing any of the remaining nut mixtures that may have stuck to the pan with a spatula to spread onto biscuits. Serve warm.
