Sweet Orange Rolls

Borrowed and Shareing Sweet Orange Rolls Sweet, light, chewy, fluffy and simple to make! These will hit the spot any day of the week. Yield: 24 small rolls Ingredients: for the dough- 1 cup warm milk 1 envelope quick rise yeast {2 1/4 teaspoons} 1/4 cup melted butter, at room temperature 1 large egg 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon salt 3-3 3/4 cups all purpose flour for the filling- 1/4 cup butter, melted 3/4 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons orange zest 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon for the icing- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 3 tablespoons orange juice Directions: For the dough: In a large bowl, stir warm milk together with yeast and half the sugar. Stand 5 minutes to let yeast proof. Stir in melted butter, egg, remaining sugar, salt, and half the flour. Stir until incorporated, then add remaining flour by 1/4 cup until dough comes together. Knead 3 minutes or until dough is smooth and feels sticky but won't stick to your hands. Place dough into buttered bowl and flip to coat dough completely in grease. Cover bowl and rise 1 hour or until doubled in size. Spray a 9x13 pan and a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Punch dough down and roll into 2 foot by 1 foot rectangle on a floured board. Spread melted butter over entire rectangle. Stir orange zest and cinnamon into sugar and stir to combine. Sprinkle sugar over butter, spreading evenly where necessary. Roll dough longwise and cut off uneven ends. Cut into 24 1-inch rolls, approximately. Place into prepared pans. Cover and let rise another hour. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake rolls 12-15 minutes or until edges are golden brown. While rolls are cooking, stir powdered sugar and orange juice together until smooth to create icing. Once rolls come out of the oven immediately drizzle with icing. Cool 10 minutes and serve.
