Caraway Rolls

These crusty dinner rolls are easy to make because they let you use a muffin pan to get a nice shape consistently. Start these rolls first, as they require a bit rising time.
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1/2 c. low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/8 c. water
  • 1/2 T. sugar
  • 1 T. caraway seed
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg white
  • Nonstick spray coating

Combine 1/2 c. of the flour and the yeast in a small mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, heat and mix the cottage cheese, water, sugar, caraway seed, and salt until warm. Add to flour mixture along with the egg white.

Beat the mixture with an electric mixer on low speed for about 30 seconds, scraping the bowl as you do so. Then beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Add the remaining flour and beat on low speed for 2 minutes or until the mixture is almost smooth.

Cover the batter and let it rise in a warm place until it doubles (about 45 minutes). Stir batter down with a wooden spoon and let it rest for 5 minutes. Spray 6 muffin cups with nonstick spray. Spoon the batter evenly into the cups. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let the batter rise until it's nearly double (about 30 minutes).

Bake the rolls in a 375 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.
