Ingredients

1 pkg
(1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
1/4 c
warm water (110° to 115°)
1 c
warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
3/4 c
orange juice
1/2 c
sugar
1/4 c
shortening
1 Tbsp
grated orange peel
1 1/2 tsp
salt
6 1/4
to 6-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1
egg, lightly beaten

FILLING

1/2 c
sugar
2 to 3 tsp
ground cinnamon
2 tsp
water

GLAZE

1 c
confectioners' sugar
4 tsp
orange juice
1 tsp
grated orange peel

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. In a large bowl, combine the milk, orange juice, sugar, shortening, peel and salt. Add 2 cups flour, yeast mixture and egg; mix well. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
2
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
3
Punch dough down and divide in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll each portion into a 15-in. x 7-in. rectangle.
4
For filling, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over rectangle. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon water. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a short end. Seal edges. Place each seam side down in a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
5
Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks. Combine glaze ingredients; spread over loaves. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
