  • 3/4 cups - milk
  • 1/3 cups - butter
  • 2 1/4 cups - flour, plus more for kneading
  • 1 1/4 cups - sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoons - salt
  • 1 packages - quick-rise yeast (0.25 oz. pkg)
  • 1 - egg
  • 4 tablespoons - melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons - cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons - orange zest (from 1 large orange)
  • 1/4 cups - heavy cream
  • Icing
  • 2 cups - powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons - orange juice
  • 1 teaspoons - vanilla
  • Directions:

    In a saucepan over medium heat, stir together milk and butter. Stir until melted, then remove from heat and set aside.

    In a mixing bowl combine flour, 1/4 cup of sugar and salt. Add yeast and lukewarm milk mixture. Combine, then add the egg.

    Using your hands or the dough hook attachment on a stand mixer, knead while gradually adding up to 1 more cup of flour until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from edges of bowl or comes together in a medium-stiff dough.

    Let dough rest for 10 minutes; preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a baking dish or cast iron skillet.

    On a floured surface, roll out dough into a rectangle. Spread melted butter over top and sprinkle with 1 cup sugar and the cinnamon and orange zest. Using a pizza wheel (or knife) cut crosswise into 10 equal strips. Roll up each strip and arrange in a buttered baking dish or cast iron skillet.

    Cover dish with a clean, damp towel and place in oven; turn oven off. Allow to rise 25 minutes, then remove from oven. Preheat oven again to 350 degrees F.

    Pour heavy cream over rolls; bake 15 minutes or until slightly golden.

    Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir together powdered sugar, orange juice and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over rolls.
