Ingredients

  • 3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon quick-rise yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package (6-1/2 ounces) garlic-herb spreadable cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Nutritional Facts

1 bun equals 143 calories, 7 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 22 mg cholesterol, 116 mg sodium, 18 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine 2-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water and oil to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  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 floured surface; divide into four portions. Roll each portion into a 9-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Cut into 3-in. squares.
  4. Place 2 teaspoons spreadable cheese in center of each square. Moisten corners with water; bring over center of filling and pinch corners tightly in center. Place seam side down on greased baking sheets.
  5. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush tops with butter. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: You may freeze leftover buns in freezer bags. Thaw buns overnight in the refrigerator, then bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes to reheat.
