Orange Rolls

Karens Knotty Orange Rolls 

This last weekend i went to a cooking class where my good friends mother taught us how to make these. These are seriously to die for and are my favorite. 

1/4 C. warm water
1 tsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. of yeast

combine in a small bowl and let sit for 10 min or until it bubbles

In a bread mixer add:
3/4 C. sugar 
1 C. instant potato flakes
1 Tbsp. salt
2 C. flour

In a saucepan melt 3/4 cup butter and add 3 cups of whole milk. Heat and cool to warm so it won't kill the yeast. Add all ingredients into bread mixer. Add 4 eggs (room temperature) and 6 cups of flour.

Dough will be sticky. Let rise for 1 hour. Roll our in a rectangle and cover with butter for plain filling or filling for orange rolls. Fold over into thirds and cut into 1 inch strips. Knot rolls and put onto cookie sheet (12 rolls to sheet) let rise for 3 hours.Bake a 400 degrees for 8-10 min or until very lightly browned. (my oven gets really hot so i bake these at 350.

Orange Roll Filling:

1 1/2 C. sugar
orange peel from 2 oranges

4-5 C. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla 
add in orange juice till glaze is a thin consistency
