Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups bread flour
  • ASSEMBLY:
  • 48 dried currants
  • 24 slivered almonds
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk

Directions

In a large bowl, mix pastry flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed 1 minute. Add egg; beat on high 2 minutes. Stir in enough bread flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Punch down dough. Let stand, covered, 15 minutes. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide and shape into 24 balls. Roll each into a 10-in. rope; tie into a loose knot. Bring one end up and tuck into center of roll to form head. Flatten opposite end; with a sharp knife, cut four slits to form five tail feathers. Press two currants into head for eyes and one almond for beak. 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°.
In a small bowl, whisk egg and milk; brush over rolls. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks; serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen.
