Butternut Squash Rolls
The springy yellow color of these rolls plus the delight of using up the last remainder of the winter squash you might still be holding onto from last fall makes these rolls a show-stopper. Just make sure you allow for enough time for the dough to rise.
  • Prep Time:
  • Cook Time:
  • Servings: 8


  • (1 package (1/4 ounce)) Active Dry Yeast
  • (1 cup) Warm Half and Half (110° to 115°)
  • (1/4 Cup) Warm Water (110° to 115°)
  • (3 Tbsp.) Butter, softened
  • (2 Tsp) Salt
  • (1 Cup) Mashed and Cooked Butternut Squash
  • (5 to 5-1/2 cups) All-Purpose Flour, divided
  • (1/2 Cup) 1# Honey


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in half and half and water. Add the butter, salt, honey, squash and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Form into rolls; place in 2 greased 10-in. cast-iron skillets or 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
