Cranberry Orange RollsBejeweled Cranberry Orange Rolls recipe has been kindly sponsored by Pillsbury, but all the opinions are my own.

Bejeweled Cranberry Orange Rolls are the perfect brunch or breakfast for those who love baking, but don’t feel like spending too much time in the kitchen. I love easy brunch ideas, and I am grateful for any shortcuts I can take.

These Bejeweled Cranberry-Orange Rolls  are the perfect brunch or breakfast item. All the cinnamon roll dough is perfectly flaky, filled with crunchy walnuts, sweet pineapple and all embedded in a flavorful orange aroma! I like to make them on a weekend, when we are all home so we can enjoy a relaxed morning in the kitchen. This is a great recipe to make with your little ones, as the instructions are easy and you only need a handful of ingredients.

Cranberry Orange Rolls

Bejeweled Cranberry Orange Rolls are a flavor bomb, combining tropical pineapple and orange with fragrant ginger in a flaky roll.


  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple undrained (from 8-oz can)
  • 1/2 cup strong ginger beer or ginger ale
  • 2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 1 can 13.9 oz Pillsbury™ Cinnabon™ refrigerated orange rolls with orange icing


  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  2. In 2-quart saucepan, cook cranberries, pineapple, ginger beer, orange juice concentrate and ginger over medium-high heat 10 to 14 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed and mixture is very thick. Remove from heat; cool 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in 10-inch skillet, toast walnuts over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden brown. Remove from heat.
  4. Open can of dough; do not separate rolls. Set icing aside.
  5. Carefully unroll dough onto cutting board, being careful not to separate. Spread cooled cranberry mixture evenly on dough; sprinkle with walnuts. Carefully reroll dough. With serrated knife, cut each roll at perforations, wiping blade of knife after each for clean cuts. Place rolls about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet, reshaping rolls if necessary.
  6. Bake 9 to 13 minutes or until golden brown. Spread icing evenly over warm rolls.
