Those look great.  I think I am going to give these a try.  I may add some orange zest to compliment the orange flavoring.  Thanks.  Terry R

Good Idea!!! Tell me how you like it with the zest. You really can't taste the orange extract, it just adds a little something to them. Don't become frustrated, these are slow risers- it always takes mine 1 1/2 hours. These are huge rolls! You can make smaller ones in the same dish. I didn't use the egg wash, this time, just rolled the tops in a little whole wheat flour before placing in the pan. Get them out of the pan right away, after baking, you don't want soggy bottoms. I think you will like them, they are soft, fluffy and just sweet enough.
