Updated January 21, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 cups Gold Medal™ Better for Bread™ flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 egg, beaten

Steps

  • 1
    Measure carefully, placing all ingredients except cherries and beaten egg in bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
  • 2
    Select Dough/Manual cycle. Do not use Delay cycle. Add cherries at the beep signal or 5 to 10 minutes before the last kneading cycle ends.
  • 3
    Remove dough from pan, using lightly floured hands. Cover and let rest 10 minutes on lightly floured surface.
  • 4
    Grease 12 large muffin cups, 3x1 1/2 inches. Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball, using floured hands. Cut 4 balls into 3 pieces each; roll into small balls. Place 12 large balls in muffin cups. Make indentation in center of each large ball with thumb. Place 1 small ball in each indentation. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.
  • 5
    Remove rolls from refrigerator. Let rise covered in warm place 40 to 45 minutes or until almost double.
  • 6
    Heat oven to 350°F. Brush beaten egg over rolls. Bake 22 to 26 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan. Serve warm, or cool on wire rack.

  • Egg washes, brushed on shaped dough before baking to give bread a beautiful golden brown crust, can be made with beaten egg, egg whites or a mixture of water and egg.
  • Dried blueberries or cranberries or chopped dried apricots can be used for the dried cherries.
