 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Starter
    1       pk           Yeast
      1/4   c            Warm water
      1/2   c            Milk
      1/4   c            Butter -- melted
      1/4   c            Honey
      1/2   ts           Salt
    3 1/4   c            Flour -- approx.
                         -----FILLING-----
      1/2   c            Butter
      1/2   c            Brown sugar
    1       tb           Orange peel -- grated
      1/4   c            Honey
      1/2   c            Flour
      1/2   c            Pecans
    1       t            Orange extract
 
   Soften yeast in water; stir in milk, batter, butter,
   honey, and salt. Gradually mix in 3 c of the flour;
   dough will be sticky.  Turn dough into a greased bowl,
   turn over to grease top; cover, and let rise in a warm
   place until double in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
   
   Turn dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead
   until smooth, about 5 min.; add flour if necessary to
   prevent dough from sticking.  Roll dough out into a
   12x15 inch rectangle;  spread orange-nut filling
   evenly over dough.  Starting with the long side, roll
   up jelly-roll fashion.  Cut across roll into 15 slices
   about 1 inch each and arrange, cut-side-up in a well
   greased 9 by 13 inch baking pan.  Cover and let rise
   until almost double, about 45 minutes.
   
   Bake in a 350^ oven for 35 minutes or until browned on
   top. Transfer rolls to a serving board; quickly scrape
   out any syrup in pan and spread it over rolls.  Serve
   them warm or reheated in a 350^ oven, lightly covered
   with foil, for about 20 minutes.  Makes 15 rolls.

   Note:  I would like to try this with cinnamon instead
   of the orange flavoring.
