Ingredients

  • 1 packet of instant yeast
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 3 cups of white whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup of Once Again Almond Butter
  • 4 tablespoons of Once Again Amoré

Instructions

  1. In a small sauce pan, add milk and three tablespoons of butter, cooking until warm and melted. Make sure to keep the mixture just a little above room temperature and never reaching a full boil.
  2. Remove this mixture from heat and sprinkle it  with yeast, letting it stand for 10 minutes. Then add one tablespoon of sugar and ¼ teaspoon of salt and stir. Let this mixture stand for another 10 minutes.
  3. Place this mixture in a large bowl and slowly start adding the flour. You may not need it all; the ready mixture will be a sticky dough.
  4. Next transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it for a minute or so until it forms a loose ball. Be careful not to overmix! Place the ball in a clean bowl, oiled with canola oil so that the dough does not stick, and let it rest for up to one hour. Cover the ball with plastic wrap to seal in the heat. The dough will double in size.
  5. Now, work the dough on a floured surface with a rolling pin until forming a thin rectangle. Spread almond butter on one side and roll it tight.
  6. Place the roll seam side down and start slicing it with a serrated knife into 1.5 to 2-inch thick pieces
  7. Place them in well buttered 8x8 dish, or in any baking dish that fits all 8-10 rolls. Cover rolls with plastic wrap again and let them rest for another 30 minutes. Then place them in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-30 minutes or until baked slightly golden brown.
  8. Remove rolls from oven and while still warm add about ½ tablespoon of Amore to each as a topping and allow the delectable Amore to melt into the rolls. Serve warm!
