Orange Rolls

Kamae Sandgren

My good friend is one of the best bakers I know.  Everything she does is fabulous.  I haven’t made these yet because I’m scared but I’ve had them a few times and they are to die for.  Here’s the recipe.  Enjoy eating heaven!

Yeast:
½ cup warm water
2 pkgs. yeast
1 tsp. sugar

Dough:

1 stick margarine
1 tsp. salt
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup whole milk
½ cup orange juice (fresh is best)
grated orange rind
6-7 cups flour

Frosting

¼ cup margarine
powdered sugar
orange juice (fresh is best)
grated orange rind

Dough:  Combine yeast, warm water, and tsp. sugar and set aside.  Let yeast rise about 10 min.  Scald the 1 cup of whole milk in a medium size saucepan.  In large bowl, combine margarine, sugar, and salt.  Once milk has been scalded, add it to the mixture.  (The milk will help melt the butter.)  Add orange juice and grated orange rind.  Add the eggs to cool down mixture before adding yeast.  (If the mixture is too hot it will kill the yeast.)  Once mixture has cooled down a little, add yeast and flour.  The last cup of flour you may have to knead in by hand.  Place dough on floured surface and knead for about 5 min.  Place back in bowl, cover with towel and let raise for 1 hour.  (I put a little bit of oil in the bowl so the dough doesn’t stick to the bowl.)  Punch down dough.  Pinch off a handful of  dough and roll out on a floured surface.  I cut the dough into strips and tie each strip in a knot, but you can really make them into any shape you’d like.  Let raise on cookie sheet another 10 min., bake for 8-10 min. at 350.

Frosting:  Combine all ingredients and frost while rolls are still warm.  One tip, cream the margarine and a little powdered sugar together until creamy, before adding any liquid.  I find that if I don’t do this, the frosting is lumpy.

I'm a mommy who has the privilege of staying home with my three little mouths to feed and two big mouths who love to eat. I'm a believer in moderation so all of these might not be the healthiest recipes, but there is a variety and I believe in eating that way and not leaving anything out. I love good food, I like to cook, I'm not that great at it but I'm always up to try new things, share recipes and eat some more!! These are a collection of random recipes that I have in stored in a bunch of different places...this is my attempt to become more organized, so enjoy and let me know if any of these are yummy to you.
