Nutritional Facts

1 roll equals 116 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 24 mg cholesterol, 155 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a large bowl, combine eggs, butter, sugar, salt, yeast mixture and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a very soft dough (dough will be sticky). Do not knead. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate overnight.
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; divide and shape into 36 balls. Roll each into a 5-in. log. Cut each log halfway down the center. Pull the cut sections apart for antlers. Using kitchen shears, snip 1/2-in. cuts along outer sides for antler points. Flatten uncut half of log for face.
  3. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover with kitchen towels; let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water until blended; brush over rolls. Press raisin halves into dough for eyes; press cherry halves into dough for noses. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 3 dozen.
Knot-Shaped Rolls: Shape dough into 36 balls. Roll each into a 6-in. rope; tie into a loose knot. Tuck ends under; place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Let rise and bake as recipe directs, increasing baking time to 10-12 minutes. S-Shaped Rolls: Divide dough into 36 portions. Roll each into a 10-in. rope. Shape rope into an “S”, then coil each end until it touches the center; place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Let rise and bake as recipe directs, increasing baking time to 10-12 minutes.
