Cucumber Pan Rolls
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
2 teaspoons minced fresh dill
Place cucumber in a blender or food processor; cover and process until smooth. Place 3/4 cup of puree in a saucepan (discard remaining puree or save for another use).
Add sour cream, water, sugar and salt to pan; heat to 120°-130° (mixture will appear separated). In a mixing bowl, combine 1-1/4 cups flour, yeast, chives and dill; add cucumber mixture. Beat on low speed just until moistened; beat on high for 3 minutes.
Add enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 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.
Punch dough down; let rest 10 minutes. Shape into 12 balls; place in a greased 13-ion. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 1 dozen.
