Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + rising Bake: 20 min.


2 dozen

The caraway and rye flavors really come through in these tender yeast rolls. A crispy golden crust and muffin shape make them an attractive addition to any meal. -Dot Christiansen, Bettendorf, Iowa


  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm 4% cottage cheese (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the cottage cheese, sugar, eggs, caraway seeds, salt, baking soda, rye flour and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Gradually stir in enough remaining all-purpose flour to form a sticky batter (do not knead). Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  2. Stir dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 24 pieces. Place in well-greased muffin cups. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 35 minutes.
  3. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.
