I have so many different Bread recipes pinned lately and it seems like I just don’t get to try them all, sigh. Having too much bread isn’t very healthy they tell me but surely if I make it instead of buy it it is ‘more’ healthy! 🙂
Here is a recipe for some amazing Butterhorns that I have made a few times and they are so good!
- 1 cups milk, scalded
- 1 package yeast -dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 beaten eggs
- 4 1/2 cups flour
- Soften the active dry yeast in warm water.
- Combine hot milk, butter, sugar and salt: cool to lukewarm. (Very important to cool or it will kill the yeast if its too hot!)
- Add 1/2 cup of the flour.
- Add yeast mixture and eggs. Beat well.
- Stir in remaining flour or enough to make a very soft dough.
- Turn out on lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 5 to 8 minutes.
- Place dough in bowl and let rise until double – about 1-2 hours (but will vary based on home temp).
- Divide into 3 equal parts. Roll each part on lightly floured board to a 9 inch circle.
- Brush with melted butter.
- Cut each circle into 12 wedges (like a pizza): roll each wedge, starting with wide end and rolling to point
- Arrange rolls, poin down, on greased cookie sheet: brush with melted butter.
Cover and let rise till very light (about 45 minutes).
Bake in hot oven (400 degrees) 10-12 minutes.
- Makes three dozen rolls.
