Cinnamon (or Orange) Rolls

Compliments of Marilyn N

About 3 dozen rolls

3 cups hot water
1 cup instant powdered milk
½ cup potato flakes (not pearls)
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 eggs
½ cup sucanat
1½ tbsp yeast
½ cup butter (very soft)
2 tsp salt
8-9 cups whole wheat pastry flour

3 tbsp melted butter
½ cup sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon OR grated orange rind

4 tbsp melted butter
powdered sugar (½ bag or so)
cold milk OR orange juice (again, add till consistency is right)

Combine water, powdered milk, potato flakes, 2 cups flour and eggs. Add sugar and yeast. Mix well and add butter and salt until smooth. Add flour, enough to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth, at least 5 min.

Place dough in greased bowl. Cover with towel and place in warm oven. Let rise 1½ hrs. Punch down. Let rise 45 min. Punch down.

Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a large rectangle. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with mixture of sugar and cinnamon (or orange rind and sugar). Roll up from long side. Cut each roll using dental floss into ¾ inch slices. Place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise 30-45 minutes or until double.

Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes. Frost rolls while still hot, using pastry brush.
