TOTAL TIME: Prep: 50 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-3/4 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 7 to 8 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • GLAZE:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, eggs, butter, salt and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, orange juice concentrate and vanilla until smooth. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll one portion into an 18x7-in. rectangle. Spread half of the filling to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • 4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices; place cut side down in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Combine confectioners' sugar, orange juice and peel; drizzle over warm rolls. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.
