3 1/2 tsp dry yeast
¼ cup warm water
1 cup milk
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup honey
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 cube butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375.
Soften yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar.
Scald milk; cool to lukewarm. Pour into a large bowl.
Add yeast, sugar, honey, and half the flour to make medium batter.
Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy.
In a small microwaveable bowl add melted butter, egg, and salt. Beat well. Add to the flour mixture.
Add the rest of the flour to form soft dough.
Sprinkle small amount of flour on counter and pour the dough onto the counter. Knead dough until smooth.
Clean the large bowl that you were using and then grease the surface.
Then put dough in greased bowl; turn over to grease top.
Cover, let rise in warm place until double in bulk, then punch down.
Turn out on floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes.
Shape dough into desired forms and place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.
Bake for 10 minutes; then reduce temperature to 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes more.
Cool on rack.
For cinnamon butter, blend all ingredients at room tempature.
**I did not follow the recipe to let the dough rise in between because I didn’t have enough time. They still turned out good, but if I did let them rise they would have been better.
