Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup warm milk 2%
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 3 1/2-3 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Filling

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 tbsp orange peel grated

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 5-6 tsp butter softened
  • 11/2 tsp lemon extract
  • 4-5 tsp milk 2%

Instructions

  1. Dissolve dry yeast and warm water in a large bowl. Add milk, shortening, sugar, salt, egg and 3 cups of flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in remaining flour, enough to form a soft dough.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for 6-8 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease all sides. Cover dough and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size. Should take about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine all filling ingredients; set aside until ready to use.
  4. Punch dough down and roll into long rectangle. Spread your filling and roll up, starting with a long end. Cut into even pieces, about 12-14.
  5. Place cut side down onto a greased 10x15 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375°. Always check during baking. Rolls should be light golden brown.
  6. Combine the powdered sugar, butter, and extract in a small bowl. Add enough milk to achieve desired consistency; spread one while rolls are warm.
