TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed cooked acorn or butternut squash
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 3 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the squash, milk, water and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Stir in enough remaining 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 1 hour.
  • 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 45 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.
