Tick Tock Orange Sticky Rolls were the star attraction at a now-shuttered Hollywood tea room for more than half a century. But recipes we found for this lost classic produced sloppy, soggy rolls soaked through with glaze. We wanted a recipe that restored Tick Tock Orange Sticky Rolls to their original glory. To do this, we used biscuits made with buttermilk and melted butter instead of cream because they tasted great and stood up to our recipe’s glaze. Allowing the glaze to harden in the cake pan before adding the biscuits kept them from soaking up too much liquid. This step also allowed them to brown much better than they had when saturated with the orange syrup.

Serves 8

Don't let the buns sit in the pan for more than 5 minutes after baking. The glaze will begin to harden and the buns will stick.
