Tammy Mitchell's "Worth Every Minute Orange Rolls" recipe

Orange Rolls

2 packages of yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water with a little sugar
2 cups warm milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
6-7 cups of flour
1 cup of oil or shortening
1/2 tsp. Vitamin C crystals to help condition dough (available at health food stores)

1 cube butter
1 Cup sugar
zest of 1 orange

Combine milk, sugar, and oil. Add 1/2 flour. Beat in eggs, yeast and vitamin c crystals. Add the rest of the flour and salt. You don't want your dough to be tough, so only add enough flour to give you a softer dough. Once all your ingredients are combined grease a large bowl and put the dough in it to rise. Let it rise until doubled. Divide the dough in half. Roll out half of the dough into a large rectangle. Spread with half of the filling and roll up jelly-roll style. Cut into 1" pieces and put into greased muffin tins. Let rise again. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Check after about 8-10 minutes and make sure that you don't need to put foil over the tops to pevent too much browning. Once you take them out of the oven immediately flip them upside down ono a sheet of parchment paper to remove from pans. (photo courtesy of Tammy Mitchell Photography) ;)
