Dill Rye Rounds Recipe

This herb bread has always been a success when I've made it for family and friends. But I was really proud when it became a prize-winning recipe in a local newspaper contest!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 30 min. YIELD:20 servings

Ingredients

  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups rye flour
  • 1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dill seed
  • 1 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1-3/4 cups water
  • 2 teaspoons shortening

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, rye flour, milk powder, yeast, sugar, salt and seasonings. In a saucepan, heat water and shortening to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • 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 45 minutes.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into two balls. Place on two greased baking sheets. Cover and let rest in a warm place until doubled, about 35 minutes.
  • 4. With a sharp knife, make several shallow slashes across the top of each loaf. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves.
