Orange Pinwheels - a Sunday morning treat.

Orange Pinwheels
Makes 24

2 c flour
3 t. baking power
2 T. PLUS ½ c sugar
½ t salt
¼ c. shortening
1 egg, beaten
½ cup milk
Grated rind on I large orange
2 T. butter or margarine, melted

Combine flour, baking soda, 2 T. sugar and salt in a bowl. 
Cut in shortening. 
Combine milk and egg and add to dry ingredients, stirring with a fork only enough to moisten. 
Turn out onto a floured board and knead gently for 30 seconds. 
Roll into a rectangle ¼” thick.
Mix the ½ cup sugar and the orange rind.
Brush dough with melted butter and sprinkle with half of the sugar/orange rind mixture.
Roll up dough, from the side, jelly roll fashion and cut into 24 slices, approximately 3/4” thick.
Put in paper muffin cups and sprinkle with the remaining sugar/orange mixture.
Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 – 20 minutes. 

Note:  I have also greased a round 8” cake pan and put the slices directly into there, sans paper cups.  Either way, they are very yummy
