Dill Loaves Recipe

I've been depending on this recipe for more than 20 years. I often shape the dough into rolls and use them for sandwiches.—Barbara Jean Robo, Joplin, Montana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons dill seed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, heat cottage cheese and butter to 110°-115°; add to yeast mixture. Add onion, dill seed, salt, eggs and 4 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough (dough will be sticky).
  • 2. 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. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape into two round loaves. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (9 slices each).
