This recipe for "Orange Rolls" is certainly another all time family favorite. Cavet was up this weekend to watch conference. Our tradition ( Nelson traditions are always centered around food) is to make "Brigham's Buttermilk Donuts" on conference sundays. But Cavets has been craving Orange Rolls. And what Cavet wants he gets. These rolls are easy and always turn out. We make them alot for Christmas. But just think about having them on Easter morning, or any morning for that matter. Once you make these rolls they will become your families favorite too.
Bon Appetite, Peggy

1 Tbs. yeast
pinch sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup milk
1 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 eggs, beaten
4 cups flour
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
grated rind from one orange


Dissolve yeast and a pinch of sugar in 1/4 cup warm water. ( water should be warm not hot) Heat milk, butter, sugar and salt till butter is melted. Cool to lukewarm (agin too hot will kill the yeast). In a large bowl combine milk, yeast mixture ,eggs and 1 cup flour. Let rise till bubbly ( about 30 minutes). gradually add remaining flour, beating well with a spoon or mixer. It is not necessary to knead. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. In the meantime in a separate bowl mix sugar, orange rind and butter until well combined. Once dough has risen, roll out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle. Then spread with orange butter mixture. Roll up as for cinnamon rolls and cut into slices. You can put them on a greased baking sheet or into greased muffins tins. Let rise one more time until doubled. Bake at 375 for 15 - 20 minutes. Makes 18 rolls ( I always double this)
