Apple Blossoms

These soft spelt rolls with an apricot and apple filling may not have been the center of the plate, but the whole grain with fruity garnish completed the dinner plate along with roasted chicken and vegetables. The dough and method is based on a recipe in Fine Cooking Magazine.

Spelt Dinner Rolls

(18 Rolls)

Mix flour, yeast and sugar in mixing bowl with dough hook in place.
1 cup spelt flour
1 tablespoon dry yeast
2 teaspoon sugar

Add warmed milk.  Beat at medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl down.
1 cup skim milk, heated to 120 F.

Add flour, egg, oil and salt.  Beat at medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl down.
1/2 cup spelt flour
1 egg, soaked in warm water for 5 minutes
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt

Slowly add flour, 1/2 cup at a time.  Knead on low speed for 8-10 minutes, until dough leaves the side of the bowl.  
2 cups spelt flour
Remove dough from mixing bowl.  Place in another bowl greased with olive oil spray.  Cover and let rise 1 hour.

Apple Apricot Filling
