Rosemary Bread

I found this recipe on a friends blog. She had made a loaf of bread and I decided to try to make rolls out of the recipe, and they were yummy. Nothing beat warm rolls out of the oven (okay I can probably think of a few things that beat that). Here is the recipe if you would like to try them:

Rosemary Rolls
1 pkg dry yeast (or 1 1/2 T.)
2 T. finely snipped Rosemary
1 c. warm water
3/4 c. sugar or honey (I used sugar)
1 tsp table salt
1 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 c. unbleached flour (approximately)
kosher salt
1/8 to 1/4 c. unsalted butter, melted

In a large bowl, sprinkle yeast and 1 T. Rosemary over the warm water.Let stand, about 10 minutes. Mix in sugar, table salt and whole wheat flour. Gradually beat in enough white flour to make a stiff dough. Knead for about 10 minutes, adding more flour, if necessary. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat all sides. Cover and let rise until doubled, about one hour. Punch down. Turn out and knead about 10 strokes. Spray a muffin pan with cooking spray and then form dough into small 3/4 inch balls. Put 3 balls into each muffin cup. Brush top of rolls with melted butter and sprinkle with 1/2 T. of remaining Rosemary. Let rise until doubled, about one hour. Brush loaf again with butter and sprinkle with remaining Rosemary and some kosher salt. Bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes. Let cool (a little bit) on a rack. This made a dozen rolls and one small braided loaf.

Thanks to the Dyer Family for the recipe.

Wow! Those look way better than my loaf. I'll have to try the rolls next time... and the braid.
I'm so glad you liked them! It's embarrassing when you rave about something and then other people don't like it.
