Orange rolls

These were a delightful treat!!

Orange Rolls
4 Tbs yeast
2 cups warm water
2 cups milk
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/3 cups margarine
4 tsp salt
4 eggs
13-16 cups flour

1 stick margarine
2 oranges
powdered sugar

Dissolve yeast in warm water in large bowl.  Stir in milk, sugar, margarine, salt, eggs, and about 6 cups flour.  Beat until smooth.  Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.  Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.  Place in greased bowl, turn greased side up.  Cover, let rise in warm place until double.  

To make glaze, place margarine in bowl, and add finely grated orange peel and juice from two oranges.  Add powdered sugar until the mixture becomes smooth frosting. 

Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.  Slide dough onto floured surface.  Shape into long rectangle.  Using a spatula, spread 1/2 of mixture over rolls and roll up.  Let rise for 15 minutes and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Take remaining mixture and pour on top of orange rolls after they cool.
