Yield: 1 dozen
2 tablespoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup acorn flour
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil and maple syrup; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the egg, salt and enough flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 3-5 minutes. Do not let rise. Divide into 12 pieces; shape each into a ball. Place 3 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
- Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Bake at 425° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
