Orange Rolls

Today's recipe is for Orange Rolls.

 I started by mixing the dough in my Kitchenaid. 

Then roll it out and spread melted butter on it.

Sprinkle your sugar mixed with grated orange rinds on top.

Roll it up.

Slice them and dip them into a bowl of orange sugar. {I make this by grating an orange with a small grater, you could use a zester if you have one. It puts all kinds of orange flavor into the sugar}

 Place in a pan and let rise until double in size.

Bake and drizzle with orange glaze while still warm.

Here's the recipe:

Orange Rolls
4 T. sugar
5 T. shortening
1 t. salt
1 c. scaled milk, cooled
2 eggs
3 1/2 - 4 c. flour
1 T. yeast

Place all ingredients in mixer and mix 5-7 minutes. Roll out and spread with 
4 T. butter
 1 c. sugar 
grated rind of one orange

Slice one inch thick, dip in orange sugar and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise until double. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. butter, melted
3 T. orange juice (just squeeze the juice from the one you grated)
1/2 t. vanilla
