In a saucepan over medium heat, add milk & butter. Stir until melted & remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 c flour, 1/4 c sugar, salt. Add yeast & lukewarm milk mixture. Combine. Add egg.
Using the dough hook attachment on your mixer, knead while gradually adding in up to 1 c flour until the dough forms a ball & pulls aways from the edges of the bowl. You can also knead by hand.
Let dough rest for 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
On a floured surface, roll out dough into a rectangle. Spread melted butter on top. Paint butter on top with a pastry brush & sprinkle with sugar & orange zest. Using a knife or pizza cutter, cut 10 strips. Roll & place in a baking dish or cast iron skillet.
Turn oven off. Cover rolls with a damp towel & allow to rise 25 minutes. Remove from oven, preheat again to 350 degrees. Cover rolls in 1/4 c heavy cream. Bake 15 minutes, or until slightly golden.
Top with icing & serve.
Covering them with heavy cream makes these thick, fluffy rolls so moist!
