Karina's Dinner Roll Recipe with Orange Roll Variation

Karina’s Dinner Roll Recipe
(with Orange Roll Variation)

1 Cup Milk
½ Cup Butter
¼ Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
¾ tsp. Salt
4 Cups Flour
1 Rounded Tbl. of Saf Yeast

Heat milk and butter till hot (not boiling, but hot).  Put in mixer and add sugar.  While mixer is running add eggs, salt and 2 cups of flour.  Add yeast and then the other 2 cups of flour (you must do this quickly so that the flour cools the mixture down a  bit so that the eggs don’t cook).  Let mix for 2 minutes.  Cover with a dish towel and let rise for 20-30 minutes.  Roll dough into a circle onto a lightly floured surface (it should be about the size of a large pizza).  Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into 16 slices.  Roll up from larger end to smaller end and pinch together so that it doesn’t come apart while baking. Put on a cookie sheet and cover with a dish rag for 20-30 minutes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes (till nice and golden brown). Put on cooling rack soon after removing from oven so that they don’t continue to cook.

Orange Roll Variation:
Same ingredients as above but zest an orange and squeeze out the juice.  After you put in the first 2 cups of flour…add ½ of the orange juice (reserve the other half for the glaze) and all of the zest.  Continue as above.  After removing from oven let cool till just slightly warm and drizzle glaze over the top.
Orange Glaze:
2Tbl. of butter
2 Cups of powdered sugar
½ tsp. of vanilla extract
Orange juice to desired consistency
Beat butter and powdered sugar, add vanilla and then add orange juice (a few tablespoons) until desired consistency
