Orange Rolls

1 pkg yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
2 C warm water
2 eggs
1/2 C sour cream
5 1/2 C flour (this is approximate- just till the dough is a little sticky.)
6 T melted butter
1 t salt
1/2 C 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 till double. Knead dough and roll into 2 - 12 inch circles and cover with filling. Cut into wedges and roll into crescent rolls. Put rolls in lightly greased 9 x 13 pan and let rise till double. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes till golden.

Filling:
4 T melted butter
1 C sugar
4 T grated orange rind



Glaze:

1/2 C butter
3/4 C sugar
1/2 C sour cream
2 T orange rind

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan. Boil over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over rolls right after you take them out of the oven.

THESE ARE THE BEST ROLLS EVER!!!!! But be forewarned that you may eat the entire batch as soon as they are out of the oven. Thanks for sharing, Mandi. Now only if I was actaully capable of making bread. . .

I am so glad that you posted this! I was just thinking about them today and was wondering how hard it was going to be to make them. Thanks!
