Ingredients

2 pkg
active dry yeast
1/4 c
warm water (110*-115*)
1 c
warm milk (110*-115*)
1/2 c
shortening
2
eggs
1/3 c
sugar
1/4 c
orange juice
2 Tbsp
grated orange peel
1 tsp
salt
5-5 1/2 c
all-purpose flour

GLAZE

2 c
confectioner's sugar
1/4 c
water
1 Tbsp
orange marmalade
1/2 tsp
butter, softened

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, sugar, orange juice, orange peel, salt and 3 c. flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
2
Punch dough down. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 13 pieces. Shape 12 pieces into 12" ropes. Fold each in half; twist to form ears. Place 2" apart on greased baking sheets. Shape remaining dough into 12 balls. Place one on top of the loop of each roll to form a tail; press into dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
3
Bake at 375* for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Coll on wire racks.
4
In a mixing bowl, combine the glaze ingredients; beat until blended, spread over rolls
