Cardamom Buns Recipe

Step 1

Makes 1 dozen

Step 2

Combine water, yeast and sugar. Stir to dissolve yeast and let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Fit processor with steel blade. Measure flour, butter, salt and cardamom into work bowl. Process until mixed, about 10 seconds.

Step 4

Add yeast mixture and 1 beaten egg to flour mixture. Process until blended, about 10 seconds.

Step 5

Turn on processor and very slowly drizzle just enough milk through feed tube so dough forms a ball that cleans the sides of the bowl. Process until ball turns around bowl about 25 times. Turn off processor and let dough stand 1 to 2 minutes.

Step 6

Turn on processor and gradually drizzle in enough remaining milk to make dough soft, smooth and satiny but not sticky. Process until dough turns around bowl about 15 times.

Step 7

Turn dough onto lightly greased surface. Shape into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap or inverted bowl and let stand at room temperature until almost doubled, 30 - 45 minutes.

Step 8

Uncover dough and divide into 12 equal parts. Shape each into smooth ball and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Step 9

Heat oven to 375 F. Brush rolls with egg white. Mix sugar and ground almonds and sprinkle over rolls. Bake until golden, 25 - 30 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on wire rack.
