Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and got lots of good deals on Black Friday hehehe, for those outside US, hope you all are having the time of your life. C’mon, chin up, Christmas is right around the corner. Oh, the cinnamon aroma taking over the kitchen, the smell of fresh-cut Christmas tree, the carols playing at the radio while driving, the cookies, oh, the cookies, the sexy gingermen, and let’s not forget about the presents and the kisses under the mistletoe
Now, back to my latest dinner rolls accompanied by some Christmasy music
4 cups bread flour
1 package dry yeast
1 cup lukewarm milk
1/4 cup butter
black sesame seeds/nigella
* you can use whatever you want to top them or even leave them plain.
Make a well in the middle of the flour. Cream the yeast and little milk, pour into the well and leave about 5 minutes.
Add the egg and melted butter
Start mixing while slowly add the rest of the milk forming a smooth and elastic dough.
Place in a greased bowl, cover with foil and leave to rise until doubled.
When risen, take the dough out and divide it into 12 (almost) equal balls.
Shape each ball as you wish or as shown HERE
Place them on baking sheets and leave to rise again. Meanwhile heat the oven at 425F.
Brush them with egg and sprinkle with seeds/salt if you use.
Bake them for 16-18 minutes or until golden.
