1 cup milk (scald & cool until lukewarm)
3 TBSP Butter
1 Cup flour
3 eggs beaten
1/2 Cup sugar
1 TBSP Yeast
Beat the above mixture together
3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
Mix together well, kneading slightly. Form a nice ball of dough, that is soft,but doesn't stick to your fingers. Add additional flour if needed. Grease a large bowl with butter, place dough in bowl, and cover with tight lid.
Rise dough until doubled in size.
Tip: Place 2 large clean bath towels inside your dryer.Turn your dryer on, and heat those towels, until they are very warm. Open dryer, and nest your bowl of dough in the warm towels. Close your dryer door.........DO NOT TURN ON YOUR DRYER!!!!
The dough will raise in no time at all. Trust me it works wonders.
6 TBSP melted butter
1/2 C. Sugar
Grated rind of 1 orange
1 bag of powdered sugar
All the freshly squeezed juice from your orange
2 TBSP Vanilla
1 cube softened butter
Enough milk to make frosting the right consistency
Mix together until fluffy with your hand mixer.
Cut frosting ingredients in half if you are not doubling recipe.
When the dough has doubled in size, you are ready to roll!
Sprinkle a generous amount of flour across your counter.
Roll out dough, in an oblong shape, about 1/2 to 3/4 " thick. Spread dough with glaze mixture. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon. Roll up your dough into a long log and pinch and seal the edges. Cut 1" slices with a long piece of sewing thread or floss.
Put in sheet pans. Rise again.....until double. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Frost while they are warm.
