orange rolls {Winner!}.

Orange Rolls from Brittany:

1/4 cup warm water
1 pkg yeast (1 T)
1 cup scalded milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 egg
1 T orange rind
1 T orange juice concentrate (or juice from orange)
2 1/2 cups additional flour

3 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
Approx. 3 T orange juice (I squeezed from an orange)
1 T. orange rind

Mix scalded milk, butter, sugar and salt. When cool add flour and beat well. Add egg and yeast that has been softened in warm water with 1 tsp sugar, orange rind and 1 T orange juice. Beat and gradually add 2 1/2 cups flour. Let rise for 1 hour or until double in size. Put on floured surface and divide into 6 balls (for smaller size). Roll into circle about 1/4 inch thick and cut each circle into 12 pie pieces. Roll up from wide to narrow end to make a crescent. Place on greased cookie sheet and allow to rise until doubled in size again (45-60 minutes). Bake at 400 for 7-8 minutes or until golden. Mix icing ingredients (sugar and butter first, then add liquid to frosting consistency); spread on rolls while warm.

Makes 6 dozen small rolls.
