Ingredients: Metric Units
2 eggs
3/4 c. water
1 Tbsp. yeast
4 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1/2 tsp. cardamom
3-4 Tbsp. butter, melted
cinnamon
sugar
pearl sugar for garnish
Directions:
With two risings, this recipe takes a while, but boy, it's worth it. Pour the coffee!

Yield: 24 rolls

In a small bowl, beat eggs, then add 3/4 c. warm water (just warm enough for a baby's bottle). Stir in yeast. Set aside for a few minutes.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, and cardamom. Cut 1/2 c. butter into small pieces and cut into the flour mixture. When the yeast mixture is foamy, add it into the dry ingredients. When the dough is smooth and elastic, prepare a large bowl by spraying with nonstick. Place the dough into the prepared bowl and flip it over so that both sides pick up a thin film of nonstick.

Let rise until doubled, about 45 min. - 1 hour.

Divide the dough into two pieces. Roll out the dough to a rectangle about 1/8 in. thick. Brush with butter. Liberally spread with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up tightly lengthwise. Using a sharp knife, cut the roll into twelve slices. Place each slice on a baking sheet. Repeat with the other half of the dough.

Brush each roll with butter and sprinkle with pearl sugar. Let stand about 30 min.

Bake at 350F for 30 min.

Serve with a hot cup of good coffee.
