How to make it

  • Dough:
  • In a large bowl, combine warm water and yeast; stir until yeast is dissolved. Add sugar, eggs, melted butter, sour cream, and salt; beat until mixture is smooth. Add 2 cups flour; stir until well mixed. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface; knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes, adding additional flour 1 tablespoon at a time if dough is too sticky.
  • Place dough in a well greased bowl; turn dough over once to grease the top. Cover bowl and let dough rise is a warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours.
  • Lightly grease two 13x9 inch baking pans.
  • Filling:
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and orange zest. Set aside.
  • Punch dough down then turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead dough briefly, 4 to 5 times.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll half of the dough into a 12-inch circle. Brush dough with 1 tablespoon melted butter, and sprinkle half of the sugar-orange zest mixture on top. Cut into 12 pie-shaped wedges. Starting with the wide-end, roll-up each wedge; bend into a crescent shape and place point-side down in the baking pans about 1 inch apart. Repeat with the 2nd half of the dough.
  • Cover and let rolls rise is a warm place until doubled in size, 1 to 2 hours.
  • Bake:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove rolls from oven. Place pan on wire rack to cool. Drizzle glaze onto still hot rolls.
  • Glaze:
  • Prepare glaze while rolls are baking. In a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, combine butter, sugar, sour cream, and orange juice; bring to a gentle boil, boil 3 minutes stirring constantly so mixture does not burn. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly until rolls are finished baking.
  • Makes 24 rolls
