Harris’ Challah Rolls

We’ll be making our popular Challah Rolls this Thanksgiving! There’s nothing like fresh baked rolls at your dinner! Try them out!

Recipe
Note: This recipe requires a bread machine.

Ingredients

Rolls:
• ¾ cup milk or water
• ¼ cup softened butter
• 2 eggs
• 3 cups flour
• 2 tablespoons honey
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1 ½ teaspoons of fast-rising dry yeast or active dry yeast marked for bread machine use

Egg Wash:

• 1 egg
• 1 tablespoon honey

Directions

Rolls:

Gather all of the wet ingredients (milk/water, butter, eggs & honey) and put them in the bread machine.

Next, add the flour and salt on top of the wet ingredients. Do not stir.

In your flour, make a small well about the size of your fist and pour the yeast into the well. Then, set your bread machine to the dough setting.

When the cycle is complete, punch your dough down once.

Then, lightly grease a cookie sheet. We suggest using butter.

Divide the dough into 10-12 pieces, and roll each into a log shape.

Tie each log into a knot and place on the cookie sheet, spaced one –two inches apart.

Cover the rolls with a lint-free kitchen towel. Place the pan in a warm place for at least an hour. This allows the dough to rise.

Egg Wash:

Whisk together the egg and honey.

Brush the dough with the mixture. Optional: You can also sprinkle the rolls with sesame or poppy seeds.

Bake the rolls for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown in the oven at 350 degrees F.

Enjoy!
