Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed cooked butternut squash
  • 5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in milk and water. Add the butter, salt, sugar, squash and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 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. Form into rolls; place in 2 greased 10-in. cast-iron skillets or 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
