Since Ann referenced them, and I am making them too, I thought I would post the wonderful recipe! The recipe is actually from a friend in Chicago, but Mom made them so much that they came to be known in Vegas and Utah as hers, at least by all our friends and family! Enjoy!
World’s Best Cinnamon Rolls (Jaidi's Moms Cinnamon Rolls)
2 cups thick instant potatoes (prepared per box directions)
2 cups scalded milk, cooled
1 cup sugar
½ cup shortening
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. yeast in ½ cup warm water
flour to make soft but not sticky dough (about 9 2/3 cup)
Mix all ingredients. Knead for 10 minutes. Let rise to double. Punch down and let rest for 5 minutes. Make into rolls or cinnamon rolls. Let rise until double and bake.
For cinnamon rolls: roll ½ of the dough into rectangle. Spread with butter then sprinkle with sugar and a lot of cinnamon sugar. Roll tight. Cut into ½ inch slices using dental floss (it’s the best I swear). Put into baking pan and let rise until double, then bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes.
For orange rolls: roll ½ of the dough into rectangle. Mix orange peel shavings, butter and sugar together and spread over dough.
Cream cheese frosting or Orange Glaze for topping.
Cream Cheese Frosting
Mix 1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. butter, and enough powdered sugar to frosting consistency.
Mix orange juice with powdered sugar to frosting consistency.
