  1. Make Honey Topping: stir together all the ingredients until smooth; set aside.
  2. Make rolls: combine the first 3 ingredients in a 1-cup glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, beat butter at medium speed until creamy.
  4. Gradually add ½ cup sugar and salt, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  5. Add in eggs, milk, and lemon juice, beating until blended; stir in yeast mixture.
  6. Combine 4 ½ cups bread flour and nutmeg; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed 2 minutes or until well blended.
  7. Turn dough out onto a surface floured with about ¼ cup bread flour; knead for 5 minutes, adding additional flour as needed.
  8. Place dough in a lightly greased large bowl, turning to grease top of dough.
  9. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1 ½ to 2 hours or until doubled in bulk.
  10. Punch dough down; turn out onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough into half.
  11. Divide1 dough half into 12 equal pieces, and shape each piece, rolling between hands into a 7-to8-inch long rope.
  12. Wrap each rope into a coil, firmly pinching end to seal.
  13. Place rolls in a lightly greased 10-inch round cake pan; repeat procedure with remaining dough half.
  14. Drizzle Honey Topping evenly over each pan of rolls.
  15. Let rise, covered, in a warm place (same as before), 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  16. Top evenly with pecans.
  17. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 20-22 minutes or until rolls are lightly browned.
  18. Make Fresh Orange Glaze: beat powdered sugar and butter on medium speed with an electric mixer until blended; add remaining ingredients; beat until smooth.
  19. When rolls are done, cool for 2 minutes in pans; spoon Fresh Orange Glaze evenly over each pan of warm rolls; serve immediately.
