Ingredients

Rolls

3 to 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 (1/4-ounce) package active dry yeast

1 teaspoon salt

1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 cup milk

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

Egg Wash

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 tablespoon water

 

12 soup and oyster crackers

Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt in bowl; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Place butter in bowl; microwave until melted. Add milk; microwave until mixture is warm (90ºF-100ºF). Add milk mixture and egg to flour mixture; mix well. Stir in enough remaining flour to make dough easy to handle.

  3. STEP 3

    Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place into greased bowl; turn greased-side up. Cover; let rise in warm place 45-60 minutes or until double in size. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)

  4. STEP 4

    Heat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

  5. STEP 5

    Punch down dough. Shape dough into 12 balls; flatten . Cut 5 slashes, using scissors, to about 1/2 inch from center, creating petals. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Cover; let rise 25 minutes or until doubled in size.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine 1 egg and water in bowl; mix well. Brush rolls with egg wash; press 1 oyster cracker into center of each roll. Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm with Butter with Canola Oil.

Can these be made ahead of time and then warmed up or could they go through the rising process, cutting them into flowers and put in the fridge until baked so they can stay warm?

Hi Nancy, you could definitely make ahead and warm up right before serving. We have also tested the method you mentioned - putting them in the fridge before the second rise works great, too. Happy baking!

Made this with half white-whole wheat and half all-purpose flour and it made a very pleasing roll. Rose nicely, excellent flavor, pleasant appearance. None were left at the end of the meal and people were asking for more.
