Caraway Puffs Recipe
Our daughter took these light-as-a-feather rolls to a 4-H event and came home with a Grand Champion ribbon! We think they're especially delectable served straight from the oven.
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1 cup (8 ounces) warm 4% cottage cheese (110° to 115°)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter, softened
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the cottage cheese, sugar, butter, caraway seeds, salt, baking soda and 1-1/3 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes longer. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough (batter will be stiff). Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Stir dough down.
- 2. Spoon into greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 35 minutes.
- 3. Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan for 1 minute. Serve immediately. Yield: 1 dozen.
