Fleischmann's®
 
 
Ingredients
 
Dough
3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick OR old fashioned oats
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups water
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
Topping (optional)
2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 
 
Instructions
 

Combine 1 cup flour, oats, undissolved yeast, and salt in large mixer bowl. Heat water, honey, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 16 equal pieces. Form into desired shapes** such as letters, numbers, or X's and O's that can be used as Tic-Tac-Toe game pieces. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft free place until doubled in size, about 35 to 45 minutes.

If desired, brush dough shapes with melted butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over tops.

Bake at 375°F for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

**To create a variety of shapes, follow directions below:

Pretzels: Roll dough pieces to 16-inch ropes; curve each to form a circle, crossing ends over at top. Twist ends once; pull crossed ends over bottom of circle.

Twists: Roll dough pieces to 12-inch ropes; fold each in half and twist 4 to 5 times. Pinch ends to seal.

Knots: Roll dough pieces to 10-inch ropes; tie each loosely in center to form a knot.

Holiday Shapes: Form ropes into hearts, shamrocks, pumpkins, bells and candy canes, as desired.
