Orange Rolls

from Tami L.

These are sooooooooooo good. My neighbor makes them and they're the BEST!

2 cups warm water
2/3 cup dry milk
2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter, shortening, or margarine
1 egg
5 to 5 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tbsp orange juice (squeezed from oranges)
2-4 Tbsp heavy cream

Mix 1/4 cup of the water with yeast and about 1/2 Tbsp of the sugar in a small glass -let yeast dissolve.
In mixing bowl, combine remaining water, dry milk, remaining sugar, salt, butter (or shortening), egg, and 2 cups of flour. Mix until wet, then slowly add the rest of the flour; enough so the dough is soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff. Let rise about 20 minutes.

Roll dough into rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.

Brush with orange butter:
1/2 cup butter
rest of 2 oranges
1/4 cup sugar

With pizza cutter, cut 3 1/2 inch strips on long side of rectangle. Starting at short side of rectangle, cut 2 inch strips of dough. Roll up strips and place on greased cookie sheet. Rise until double in size. Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool 10 to 15 minutes and then drizzle icing over top.
