TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed cooked butternut squash
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided

  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 dozen.
