Ingredients

1/2 c
canned squash or pumpkin
1/4 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1
egg beaten
1 pkg
yeast dissolved in 1/2 cup water
1/2 stick
butter
21/2 to 3 c
flour
1/2 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Scald the milk (heat until bubbles form on the top - do not boil)
2
Dissolve 1 package of yeast in 1/2 cup of warm (not hot) water
3
In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup squash or pumpkin, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 cup of butter.
4
Add Scalded milk and mix
5
When mixture is lukewarm, add the beaten egg and dissolved yeast.
6
Slowly mix the flour into the mixture, until you have the righ consistency. Not too wet nor too dry.....if that helps.
7
Cover the bowl with a dish towel and put in draft free place to rise. Dough will double in size when risen. This takes around an hour...more or less.
8
Punch dough down and roll out into a circle on a pastry sheet or counter top that has been sprinkled with flour to eliminate sticking.
9
Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter if you have one. Otherwise use a knife.
10
Roll the triangles into rolls, place on a baking sheet, cover with a dish towel and let rise again. This will probably take 30 minutes.
11
Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until rolls are lightly brown on the top. Serve and enjoy!
