Cheddar Twists Recipe

Cheddar Twists

Makes: 12 twists
Proof Time: 20 to 40 minutes
Bake Time: 10 to 15 minutes

3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons sugar
2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2/3 cup water
1 (5-ounce) can evaporated milk
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 egg white, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water
Grated Parmesan cheese or Spice Islands® Poppy Seed OR Sesame Seed (optional)

Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Heat water and milk until very warm (120° to 130°F); stir into flour mixture. Stir in cheese and enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece to 14-inch rope; fold each rope in half and pinch ends to seal. Twist each rope two to three times. Place on large greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.

Brush with egg white mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, poppy seed, or sesame seed, if desired. Bake at 400°F for 10 to 15 minutes or until done. Remove from baking sheet; let cool on wire racks.
