Orange Rolls

OK, I will stop posting for a while after this...Kristin requested that I post these and I must say that they are a real winner!

1 pkg yeast
2 c. warm water
2 eggs
½ cup sour cream
Flour (abt 5 or 6 cups. Just so it is a nice sticky dough.)
6 T. melted butter
1 t. salt
½ cup sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Beat in sugar, eggs, salt, butter and sour cream. Beat in 2 cups flour then knead in the rest. Let rise until double. Knead dough 15 times then roll into 2-12" circles and put the filling on. Cut into 12 wedges and roll up like crescent rolls. Put rolls into 9 x 13 pan and let rise until double. Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Filling: (I usually double this.)
2 T. melted butter
½ cup sugar
2 T. grated orange rind

Glaze: ½ cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
½ cup sour cream
2 T. orange juice

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan. Boil over medium heat for 3 minutes stirring constantly- pour over rolls immediately after taking from oven.

YUM! I may just work up the courage to try these, but I KNOW they will not turn out as good as yours!
