How to make it
- 1. Sift flour, 1 cup sugar and salt together. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. If using oil, stir oil into liquid ingredients after adding the egg.
- 2. Dissolve yeast in warm water, stir vigorously, and allow to ferment for 5 to 10 minutes. Then add the egg and anise extract or aniseeds.
- 3. Add a small quantity of the flour mixture to the yeast and beat until thoroughly blended. Let stand for a few minutes, or until dough becomes light and airy.
- 4. Add the rest of the flour mixture, adding more flour if necessary to make a stiff dough. Knead on a lightly floured board until satiny.
- 5. Butter the top of the dough, cover with wax paper and let rise until doubled.
- 6. When the bread has risen, punch it down, and let it rise until doubled again.
- 7. Knead the dough slightly, then form into balls the size of an orange. With a rolling pin, flatten to 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
- 8. Prepare a topping by mixing together the melted butter, remaining 1 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Spread topping on all sides of the rolls.
- 9. Let rolls rise until light and about doubled in size. When nearly doubled, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake in a preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Slice thinly and butter generously with soft butter. Arrange slices on a platter as desired. They will keep for 2 to 3 days at room temperature when well wrapped.
- Maximum recommended freezer storage: 3 months
- Makes 8 to 10 small loaves.
