Glazed Orange Rolls

Funny this blog's title is about dinner, and I never post anything but treats or breakfast stuff. That's where my fellow contributors are supposed to come in, right? Guys? Seriously, where are you? =)

Well, in the meantime, do yourself and anyone near you a favor and make these delicious rolls! I made them because Ryan doesn't care for citrus flavored baked goods (I do) and he was out of town. Don't even get me started on where he was at (Hawaii of all places), that's a whole other can of worms. . . At least I could console myself by eating a half dozen of these yummy rolls.

Glazed Orange Rolls
1 pkg. dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp.)
1/4 C. warm water
1 C. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 C. sour cream
1/2 C. butter, melted
2 2/3- 3 C. flour
2 Tbsp. grated orange rind

1) Soften yeast in warm water in mixing bowl. Stir in 1/4 C. sugar, salt, eggs, sour cream, and 6 Tbsp. butter. Gradually add flour to form a stiff dough, beating well after each addition.
2) Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled, about 2 hours
3) Combine 3/4 C. sugar and orange rind. Knead dough on well-floured surface, about 15 times. Roll out half of dough to a 12 inch circle. Brush with 1 Tbsp. melted butter. Sprinkle with half of sugar-orange mixture. Cut into 12 wedges.
4) Roll up, starting with wide end and rolling to a point. Repeat with remaining dough. Place rolls, point-side down, in rows in a well-greased cookie sheet with a lip. Cover; let rise in warm place until light and doubled, about 1 hour.
5) Bake at 350 degrees for 12 -14 minutes or until light golden brown. Spoon over orange glaze.

These are divine warm!!!!
