1. Preheat the oven to 350.

Instructions:

2. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Instructions:

3. In a food processor, blitz the cranberries, the juice from the orange, and the 2 Tablespoons of sugar until mostly chopped. It doesn't need to be perfectly smooth, some chunks are good, you just don't want tons of big pieces..

Instructions:

4. Line your counter with parchment paper.

Instructions:

5. Unroll the cinnamon rolls from both packages, triying to keep the individual rolls together as much as possible, and spread the cranberry mixture evenly over the dough.

Instructions:

6. Carefully re-roll the cinnamon rolls. If big chunks of the cinnamon roll mixture are left behind on the parchment paper, just smear them back onto the dough.

Instructions:

7. Separate the dough into individual rolls and place them in the baking sheet.

Instructions:

8. Bake according to the package directions (350F for about 18 minutes) or until the rolls are golden brown. Do not over bake.

Instructions:

9. Allow the rolls to cool on a wire rack until almost room temperature - you don't want them too warm or the frosting will melt off.

Instructions:

10. Open the packages of frosting that came with the refrigerated cinnamon rolls and squeeze the frosting into a small bowl.

Instructions:

11. Stir in the orange zest. If you want the frosting to be a little thinner for spreading, you can add 1 TBSP of orange juice (highly recommend because its a good choice) or milk.

Instructions:

12. Drizzle and spread the orange frosting over the warm cinnamon rolls.

Instructions:

Enjoy!
