READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

Convent Cookery. Looks like something David Lee would like, wouldn't you boy. I didn't tie these in a knot and they still were nice. They have a light orange flavor--really good.

Just did these today, I used the dough cycle on my bread machine (only way possible with a boy going through the "terrible twos") I iced them with orange icing and garninshed with more orange zest. these are very good! I don't know if using a bread machine may have altered the taste or texture any, but they were still yummy. I am certainly going to be making these again, maybe with choc or cream cheese icing also.
