  1. For rolls, Stir together warm milk, yeast, and 1 tablespoon sugar in large bowl. Let stand 5-10 minutes or until foamy.

    Zest and juice orange, reserving 4 teaspoons zest and 4 tablespoons juice.

    Add butter, remaining sugar, vanilla, salt, 1 teaspoon orange zest and 2 tablespoons orange juice to milk mixture. Mix with electric mixer using dough hook on medium speed until combined. Gradually add flour and mix on medium speed until a smooth, elastic dough forms, about 2-4 minutes.

    Spray large bowl with vegetable pan spray. Form dough into a ball, place into bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let stand in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.

  2. For filling, Stir together butter, sugar, flour and 1 tablespoon orange zest in medium bowl until well-combined.

    Prepare a 9 in. round pan with vegetable pan spray.

    Punch dough down and roll out to a 12 in. x 10 in. rectangle on floured surface. Spread filling onto dough and sprinkle with nuts, if using. Roll up dough from long end, as for a jelly roll. Pinch seam to seal and cut into 8 equally-sized pieces.

    Place rolls into prepared pan, cut side up; cover with plastic wrap and let rise 25-30 minutes or until doubled in size.

    Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°F. Remove plastic wrap from rolls and bake 25-29 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack while preparing glaze.

  3. For glaze, Stir remaining 1-2 tablespoons orange juice into confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.
