Orange Marmalade rolls

I got this recipe for the Pioneer Woman (man I love her recipes!!!) and just added one extra ingredient to the glaze because I LOVE the orange flavor in my rolls. These were SOOOO good. This is actually what we made and took around to friends for Christmas with a note attached that said "Here's a sweet treat "rolled" up with Chirstmas wishes for you!" Pretty cheesy I know...but that's the kind of gal I am!:) Here it is:

Orange Marmalade Rolls
Recipe from Pioneer Woman

The dough:
1 quart whole milk (I've used skim before and couldn't tell a whatever you have on hand I think would be fine.)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 packages yeast
8 cups (plus 1 cup extra, separated) flour
1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
1 scant teaspoon baking soda
1 heaping tablespoon salt

Mix the milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a pan. Scald the mixture (heat until just before it starts to boil). Turn off heat and leave to cool for 45 minutes to 1 hour. When the mixture is lukewarm to warm, but NOT hot, sprinkle in both packages of yeast. Let this sit for a minute. Then add 8 cups of flour. Stir mixture together. Cover and let rise for at least an hour. After rising for at least an hour, add 1 more cup of flour, the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir mixture together. The dough is now ready!!!

Preparing Rolls:
1/2 jar of marmalade (PW used Bonnie Mama's orange marmalade but that stuff is pretty I tried walmarts brand of orange marmalade and it was fantastic!!!)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Sprinkle rolling surface with generously with flour. Take half of the dough and roll it out into a long rectangle. Spread the marmalade over the top. Pour on the butter, and then sprinkle on the brown sugar evenly. Sprinkle with salt (I never did this...). Beginning with the long side farthest from you, rollt he dough in a long roll toward you; begin careful to keep it tucked tightly. Pinch edge to seal. Cut rolls into 1 to 1 1/2 inch rolls and place into buttered pans. (I use my 7" round cake pans...but this makes about 7 of those, and I don't have 7 cake pans so I just use the aluminum ones...those you can take to neighbors or friends or whatever and not have to worry about losing a cake pan!) Allow to rise for at least 20 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.

While the rolls are baking prepare the glaze:
2 pounds powdered sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1 dash salt
1 teaspoon orange extract (this is an ingredient I added because I like more of an orange flavor...also I didn't have any orange juice when I made them once and just used milk instead and the orange extract and it was just as good!)
Mix all ingredients together, thining with more milk or orange juice to make the mixture pourable.
Immediately drizzle orange glaze over the top of the warm rolls. Serve warm (this way is the best!) or at room temperature.'ve just made the best orange rolls EVER!!!:)
