Sweet Potato Crescent Rolls
from Simply in Season (from Jamie's Recipes)
Combine in a large bowl:
1 1/2 c. whole wheat bread flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 T active dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground allspice
In large saucepan, combine:
1 c. sweet potatoes (cooked and mashed)
1 c. milk
1/4 c. butter
Cook over medium heat, stirring until butter is melted and mixture is warm. Add to flour mixture. Beat with mixer set on low speed, scraping bowl often, until mixture is all moistened, 1-2 min.
1 large egg beaten
mix at medium speed for 3 minutes.
2-2 1/2 c. bread flour
Stir in enough flour by hand to make dough easy to handle. Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 7-9 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turn to grease both sides, cover with a damp cloth, and let rise until doubled in bulk. Punch down dough and divide it in half. Roll each half of dough on lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle.
Brush each circle with 1 T meltedbutter. Cut into 12 wedges and tightly roll up each wedge from wide end to point. Place crescent rolls, point-side down, on greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise until doubled. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees until golden brown, 12-15 min.
