Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast

  • 2 eggs
  • 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 108 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 20 mg cholesterol, 102 mg sodium, 16 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the sugar, cornmeal and salt. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 5-10 minutes or until thickened. Cool to 110°-115°.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add eggs and cornmeal mixture. Beat in enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; roll out to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. biscuit cutter. Brush with melted butter.
  4. Using the dull edge of a table knife, make an off-center crease in each roll. Fold along crease so the large half is on top; press along folded edge. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Remove from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

Remove the cornmeal and you can use the roll dough as bread loaves.
