We all have our weaknesses. Mine are my friend Linda Worsley's sweet orange sticky buns, a soft and squishy yeast roll recipe, flavored with loads of fresh zest. We can always count on her to make them for brunch or dessert, and when she bakes them, the kitchen fills with an irresistible orange perfume as they puff up in the pan and brown on top. The preferred way to eat them is straight from the oven and almost too hot to handle, drizzled with an icing made with fresh-squeezed orange juice, confectioners' sugar, and plenty of sweet butter.
