Snowbird cinnamon rolls (bun buns)

5 Oranges
10 T. Brown Sugar
1 T. Ground Cinnamon
2 (12 oz) Pkg. Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuit Dough
10 T. Milk

NOTE: This recipe is for cooking over an open fire outdoors. It is totally yummy, and my family has done this for years… It is the best… You gotta try it.

Cut the top third off the oranges and scoop out all the palp; reserve the tops for this recipe and reserve the pulp for another use if you want. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. For each orange, flatten the dough for 2 biscuits and top them with 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll the biscuits up into a ball and place them into the oranges.

The Dough should fill the orange about 2/3 of the way full, leaving room at the top for the cinnamon roll to rise and grow. Add more or less dough according to the size of your orange. Add 2 Tablespoons milk to each orange and put the tops back on.

Wrap them individually in 3 layers of Foil. Put them into the glowing embers of the campfire to cook for 7 to 10 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time. Be sure to protect your hands from the fire at all times…

After cooking time, remove from the coals… and peel back the orange and remove top… The Cinnamon Roll is such a treat on a camping trip.
