Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup warm water (100° to 110°F)

  • 1

    envelope Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast

  • 1

    cup warm milk (100° to 110°F)

  • 1/3

    cup sugar

  • 1/4

    cup butter OR margarine, softened

  • 3/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/8

    teaspoon anise extract

  • 3

    tablespoons sliced almonds

  • Creamy Orange Frosting:

  • 1-1/2

    cups powdered sugar, sifted

  • 3

    tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh orange juice

  • 1

    tablespoon freshly grated orange peel

Directions

Place water in a bowl. Sprinkle in yeast; stir until dissolved. Add milk, sugar, butter, salt and 1-1/3 cups flour. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg, anise extract and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Punch dough down; remove to floured surface. Roll dough to 24 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread evenly with 1/2 of Creamy Orange Frosting. Roll up tightly from long side as for jelly roll; pinch seam to seal. Join ends together; shape into a ring. Place on greased baking sheet. With sharp knife, make diagonal slashes on top of ring. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350ºF for 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; place on a wire rack. Drizzle with remaining Creamy Orange Frosting while warm. Sprinkle with almond slices. Creamy Orange Frosting: Combine powdered sugar, melted butter, orange juice and orange peel in a medium bowl. Stir until smooth.
