"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Andi Dowda


2 cups milk, warmed
2 envelopes yeast
cup granulated sugar
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cardamom
tsp. salt
⅔ cup softened butter
cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 egg, beaten
cup pearl sugar

1. In small bowl combine warm milk and yeast. Stir until the yeast is dissolved and begins to bubble, about
5 minutes.
2. In separate bowl combine dry ingredients: sugar, flour, cardamom and salt. Add in milk and yeast
mixture. Using your fingers, add little knobs of butter. Using a dough hook or your hands, form the dough
and knead until the dough holds its shape, around 10 minutes. Cover the dough with a moist towel and
let rise until doubled in size, around 45 minutes.
3. Once the dough has risen, divide it in half and roll each portion of the dough into a large rectangle.
4. For the filling, combine butter, sugar and cinnamon. Spread on both rectangles of dough evenly.
5. Preheat oven to 425F.
6. Roll up each rectangle from the smallest end and cut into 1 1/2 inch slices. Place buns on baking sheet
and cover with a towel, proof until doubled in size, around 20 minutes.
7. Whisk the egg until frothy. Brush on buns and sprinkle with pearl sugar. Bake until golden brown, about
8-10 minutes.
