TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. + cooling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 to 6-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups rye flour
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons dark molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • Additional melted butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, rye flour, sugar, yeast, salt, caraway seeds and baking soda. In a large saucepan, heat the milk, butter and molasses to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add eggs; 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 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a ball. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Roll each ball into a 6-in. x 3-in. oval. Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side, stretching and pinching ends while rolling to taper ends.
  • 5. Place on greased baking sheets. Curve rolls to form a crescent shape. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 6. Bake at 375° for 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to wire racks. Brush with melted butter. Cool. Yield: 16 rolls.
