 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Active dry yeast
  • 1/4 c Warm water (110ø to 115øF)
  • 3/4 c Warm milk (110ø to 115øF)
  • 1/4 c Sugar
  • 1/4 c Shortening
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 3/4 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 c Candied cherries, quartered
  • 1 c Confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tb Milk


In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add warm milk, sugar,
shortening, salt, egg and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in
cherries. Add enough of the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn
onto a floured board; 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 for
about 10 minutes. Divide dough into half. Roll each half into a 12x7-inch
rectangle. Cut twelve 1-inch strips from each rectangle. Twist each strip
and place 2-inches apart on greased baking sheets, shaping one end like a
cane. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375øF
for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Combine
confectioner's sugar and milk; frost rolls.
