    Sour Cream Orange Buns

    1/2 c sugar
    3 eggs
    1/2 c margarine or butter, very soft
    1/2 c sour cream
    2 c warm/hot water
    8 c flour (approximate)
    2 T instant yeast
    1 tsp salt

    1/4 c melted butter (approx) for brushing
    1 c sugar
    1 c coconut
    Grated rind of two oranges

    3/4 c sugar
    1/2 c butter or margarine
    1/2 c sour cream
    Orange rind & juice of 1/2 orange

    Beat sugar and eggs well; beat in butter and sour cream. Add water and a few cups flour, then the yeast and salt. Continue adding flour to make a soft dough that holds together.
    If you are using a mixer, transfer dough to a large bowl at this time. Itís good if itís still a bit sticky. Sprinkle lightly with flour and using floured hands, shape into a ball. Push down and under along sides while rotating bowl with left hand, until dough is smooth. Cover and let rise 1 hour.

    Divide risen dough in half and roll each out to about 10Ēx 22Ē. Donít press too hard.
    Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with 1/3 of the filling. (1/3 for each half and save 1/3 for topping).
    Roll up jelly roll style and slice. Place on greased or parchment paper lined pans.
    Cover with tea towel and plastic. Let rise 1 hour. They should be touching when they are ready. Sprinkle with some of the filling and bake at 350 degrees about 20 minutes.

    Bring glaze ingredients to a boil and cook, stirring for 1 1/2 minutes. You can do this while the buns are baking so that it thickens a bit while standing.
    Spoon over buns while buns are still hot.
    Yields: 3 dozen
