Orange Pull-Aparts

ORANGE PULL-APARTS from Shirley Aaron
1/2 C. butter
1/2 C sugar
3 Beaten eggs
2 Pkgs. yeast
1/4 C. Warm water (to activate yeast)
1 C. Hot water
2 Tsp. salt
4 1/2 C. Flour
1/3 C. Shaklee N.P.S. or I just added flour instead when I didn’t have it.
Orange rind, grated
Melt butter, let cool; add remaining ingredients in order given. Let stand until raised double.Punch down and refrigerate. Next day, 3 hours before serving, roll into rectangle the size of the Tupperware pie sheet (mine measures: 15 X 21 inches). Spread with soft butter completely and sprinkle with sugar and grated orange rind. Cut into 2-inch squares. Stack squares into towers and stand them up in greased Bundt pan (butter side of square to the next unbuttered square) until pan is full. Press down and let rise to the top of Bunt pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 min. until golden brown.
Notes from Lizzie: Shaklee NPS is a protein supplement: I added more flour. If you have a pie sheet I recommend using it to roll the dough out. Take directly from frig. and roll out before the dough gets real sticky on you (some light flouring required). Here's a photo of the "towers" but keep in mind my dough was a little warm and thus gooey.
