Orange Rolls

This recipe makes very fluffy rolls and an enormous amount. I sent almost a whole pan with my husband to work, but you could just as easily freeze the leftovers for a lazy Sunday morning.

Recipe from The Sisters Cafe
What you need:
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 2/3 cup nonfat dry milk
  • 2 tbsp. yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 5 to 5 1/2 cups flour, separated
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. orange juice
Combine water and dry milk until milk is dissolved.

Add yeast, sugar, salt, butter, egg and 2 cups flour.
Mix on low until incorporated, then medium for 2 minutes.

Add 2 more cups flour. Mix on low until incorporated, then medium for 2 minutes. 
Add 1/2 cup flour and mix again.
Cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down.
Turn onto a floured surface and flour top lightly. Separate into 3 pieces.

Roll out into 9x13-inch rectangles.
In a bowl, mix butter, sugar, and orange juice together.

Spread 1/3 mixture onto each rectangle.

Roll up like a jelly roll and cut into 1-inch slices.

Place into a greased baking pan and let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 for 20 minutes (some may cook faster, mine took 25 minutes).
Mix together powdered sugar and orange juice for glaze.

Drizzle with orange glaze when done cooking.

    Those are beautiful rolls and they sound like the perfect morning treat. My husband works at home so I never get to send stuff to his office...or if I do it ends up getting eaten by his secretary (me). :) Thanks for sharing on Crazy Sweet Tuesday!
