Orange Rolls...Yum!

Ahhh, Memories! I worked next door to the Original All Steak Restaurant for 6 years in the early 1980's...
I am not much of a sweet eater, but these orange rolls are to die for!
Three different versions given below, hope you enjoy!

Show: Calling All Cooks
Episode: Moroccan Couscous/Bitty Buns
All Steak Restaurant
Cullman, AL


Biscuits:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup shortening
1 cup buttermilk
Filling:
1/4 cup butter, softened (1 teaspoon per biscuit)
1 cup and 2 tablespoons orange marmalade (1 1/2 tablespoons per biscuit)
1/4 cup brown sugar (1 teaspoon brown sugar)
Icing:
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon butter, softened
2 tablespoons cream cheese
Dash salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons orange zest

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
For Biscuits: Combine dry ingredients for biscuit. Cut shortening into dry mixture. Add buttermilk and blend. Roll out biscuit dough on floured waxed paper until about 3/4 of an inch thick. Cut with a round biscuit cutter as if you were making biscuits. You'll get approximately 10 to 12 biscuits. Roll out each individual biscuit until it is 5 inches in diameter and 1/4-inch thick.
On each biscuit, layer butter, marmalade and brown sugar. Roll up each biscuit and slice into 3 pinwheels of equal size. Place rolls in 2 (7 by 7-inch) baking pans. (You can also use other dimensions of pans. The key is to keep the rolls close together). Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes before icing.
For Icing: Mix powdered sugar, orange juice, margarine, cream cheese, salt, vanilla, and orange zest until smooth. Drizzle over rolls.

These rolls have been served as part of the bread "basket" for as long as I can remember...and that's a looonnnggg time!
Personally, I prefer the yeast dough but the filling/icing that she gave are similar and
I like to intertwine the two recipes and use the icing she gave sometimes...
The "Wallace's", Elaine's grandparents were the original owners of the restaurant.
I worked next door (1980's), prior to their moving to the current location above Wachovia Bank.
These are a "classic"...even my mom remembered having them as a young woman "YEARS" ago circa 1940's!
