Ingredients

  • 2

    packages (¼ ounce each) active dry yeast

  • ¼

    cup warm water (110° to 115°)

  • 1

    cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)

  • ½

    cup shortening

  • 2

    eggs

  • cup sugar

  • ¼

    cup orange juice

  • 2

    tablespoons grated orange peel

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 5 to 5-½

    cups all-purpose flour

  • GLAZE:

  • 2

    cups confectioners' sugar

  • ¼

    cup water

  • 1

    tablespoon orange marmalade

  • ½

    teaspoon butter, softened

Directions

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, sugar, orange juice, orange peel, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining 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 and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; turn on a lightly floured surface. Divide into 13 pieces. Shape 12 pieces into 12-in. ropes. Fold each in half; twist top half of the open end twice to form ears. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Shape remaining dough into 12 balls. Place one on the loop end of each roll to form a tail; press into dough. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. In a small bowl, combine the glaze ingredients. Spread over rolls.
