Gluten Free Orange Cinnamon Rolls

3 c. Amazing Grace (or other) gluten free pastry flour
1 c. Amazing Grace (or other) all purpose gluten free flour
2 t. salt
1¼ c. milk
1 T. quick yeast
4 T. sugar
4 t. brown sugar
2 T. orange juice
1 egg and 1 egg white
4 T. butter flavored Crisco
1 t. vanilla
4 T. plain potato flakes
Zest of 1 orange

In a bowl sift 3 c. of Amazing Grace gluten free pastry flour and 1 c. of Amazing Grace all purpose gluten free flour. Sift 3 times. Measure out 2 c. of mixed flour and add 2 t. salt into sifter. Sift into a separate bowl and set aside.
In a separate bowl, warm 1¼ c. milk with 1 T. quick yeast and 4 T. sugar. Stir and let bubble about 10 min. Then add 2 T. orange juice and mix. Add 1 egg and 1 egg white (or substitute) to mix, then add 4 T. soft butter flavored Crisco and 1 t. vanilla to bowl and beat with electric egg beater. Now mix in 4 T. plain potato flakes. Add the 2 c. of sifted flour with salt in it and mix for 3 minutes. Add 1 more c. of the blended flour a little at a time and beat in after each addition. Add ½ grated zest of an orange to it.
On a flat surface put out 2-3 t. pastry flour and spread. Gently pat out pastry dough you just mixed, and using a slightly floured rolling pin, roll to about 10 inches by 5 inches. Now gently place a mixture of 4 t. brown sugar, ½ orange rind, and 4 t. melted butter mixture in the center (like making cinnamon rolls) and start to gently roll up. I often have placed the dough onto (sprayed with Pam) a plastic wrap sheet before rolling out. It is easier to roll over the wrap to turn into a roll. Seal the edge by pinching together.
Gently cut into ½ in rolls with dental floss. Place in a greased round cake pan (you may need to use two round cake pans). Place them close together in pans.
This recipe can be changed to make cinnamon rolls, cranberry rolls, lemon rolls, jam rolls, or even the orange rolls above. All you do is change the flavorings, add nuts if desired, change the icing, and you have created your own roll recipe.
CAUTION: Don’t over-stuff the center.
