TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour + rising Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1-1/4 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 7 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons grated orange peel
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the sugar, egg yolks, butter, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 24 pieces; shape into balls. In a shallow bowl, combine sugar and orange peel; set aside 2 tablespoons.
  • 4. Dip balls in melted butter; roll in remaining sugar mixture. Arrange in a greased 10-in. fluted tube pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup almonds. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 5. Sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture and remaining almonds. Bake on lowest oven rack at 350° for 38-42 minutes or until golden brown (cover loosely with foil if browning too quickly). Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.
