Based on Grandma’s Orange Rolls. Completes in around an hour and a half with a fair amount of downtime during rise.
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1 cup warm soymilk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 TSP salt
- 1 TBSP flaxseed powder mixed with 3 TBSP water
- 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup margarine, softened
- 2 TBSP grated orange peel
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 4 TSP margarine, softened
- 1/2 TSP orange extract
- 4 to 5 TSP soymilk
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Add the soymilk, shortening, sugar, salt, flax mixture and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Knead on a lightly floured surface for 6-8 minutes, then place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place for roughly 1 hour.
- Meanwhile, grate 1/2 large orange peel into small bowl, combine filling ingredients and set aside. Mix Glaze ingredients in a separate small bowl.
- While you continue to wait for the dough to rise, cover two medium or large baking pans with aluminum foil and grease lightly.
- Divide dough in half. Roll each piece into a 1/4″ thin, slightly oblong rectangle. Spread light, even coating of filling onto each rectangle and roll up each. Slice each log into around 10 rolls and space evenly on foil-covered trays. Drizzle excess or lost filling atop rolls. These can now begin baking where they will rise EVEN MORE!
- Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove and spread glaze over warm rolls.
