These rolls have a nice flavor...folks usually don't guess that carrots are one of the ingredients. My family really likes them; see if yours will, too!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced carrots
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°), divided
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 8-1/2 to 9 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Place carrots in a saucepan and cover with water; cook until tender. Drain and cool slightly. Place in a blender or food processor. Add eggs and 1/2 cup water; puree until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in remaining water. Add carrot mixture. Stir in oil, sugar, molasses, salt and 5 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  3. 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.
  4. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into 48 balls. Place 2-in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until browned. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
