"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

1 pkg. active dry yeast
c. warm water
c. warm milk
1/3 c. shortening or butter, softened.
1 tsp. salt
1 egg
3 to 4 c. flour

Orange Topping:

1 c. powdered sugar
2 T. margarine
2 tsp. orange peel
1 T. + 1 tsp. orange juice

Creamy Glaze:

c. powdered sugar
2-3 tsp. hot water
1 T. margarine
tsp. vanilla

Dissolve yeast in warm water in large mixing bowl. Stir in milk, sugar, shortening, salt, egg and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.
Knead about 5 min. Leave in bowl to raise- about 1 hours. Shape, let rise, and bake and 350 for about 15-20 min., depending on the size you make them.

For Cinnamon Twists: roll into rectangles. Put cinnamon-sugar mix on half, fold other half over. Cut into strips, twist, and bake.
