Buttery and savory einkorn crescent rolls. Eat them plain, with butter and jam, or as a sandwich!
- 4 cups Organic All-Purpose Einkorn Flour
- 1 1/4 cups Milk, warmed
- 1 large Egg
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
- 1/4 cup Butter (to spread on the dough before rolling)
- 1 large Egg (for egg wash)
- 1 tablespoon Water
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Yeast
- Spray a large glass bowl with non-stick cooking spray
- In a small saucepan on the stove, warm the milk until it’s warm You will want this to be the same temperature as the skin on your wrist. If it is too hot, wait for it to cool before adding to the other ingredients.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer, mix together the yeast, sugar, and warm milk. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Let sit until it’s frothy.
- Using the dough hook, add the egg, salt, and 2 cups of the all-purpose einkorn flour. Beat on low speed and add flour 1/4 cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the side of the mixing bowl. It’s okay if you haven’t used all of the flour.
- Continue kneading the dough with the electric mixer for 2 more minutes.
- Cover and let the dough rise double in size.
- Knead with the electric mixer again and add more flour, 1/4 cup at a time until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixer again. (At this point you should have about 1/4 cup flour remaining.
- Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- Sprinkle the remaining flour onto the countertop and divide the dough into 2 large, equal portions. Add a little of the flour to your rolling pin and roll the dough into a 14″-16″ circle.
- Melt 1/4 cup butter and using a pastry brush, brush the butter on the dough.
- Use a pizza cutter and cut the dough into 8 pie-shaped pieces. Starting with the wide end of the dough, roll, and place on a greased baking sheet in a crescent shape. You should be able to fit 8-10 rolls on a baking sheet.
- In a small bowl, crack one egg and add 1 tablespoon of water. Use a pastry brush and brush the egg mixture on the crescent rolls.
- Put your rolls in a warm place and let them rise to almost double
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12-16 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
