How to Make It
Dissolve yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar in warm milk; stir well, and let stand 5 minutes or until bubbly.
Combine remaining sugar, eggs, shortening, salt, orange rind, and yeast mixture, stirring well. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a floured surface, and knead 8 minutes or until smooth and elastic.
Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
Punch dough down, and let rest 5 minutes. Lightly grease muffin pans, and place 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar in bottom of each muffin cup. Shape dough into 2-inch balls; place 1 ball in each muffin cup. Cover and repeat rising procedure 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.
Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
