Finnish Wheat Rolls Recipe

Finnish Wheat Rolls Recipe

When I came to the United States from Finland for college, I missed the breads from back home. So I came up with this recipe to recapture those fabulous flavors.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 1 tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2-3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Additional melted butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the butter, parsley, rosemary, salt, sage, thyme and whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough 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 30 minutes.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Brush with additional melted butter. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
