Rosemary Satin Dinner Rolls

2-1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
2/3 cup cream style cottage cheese
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup butter (no substitutes!)
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 egg
1 slightly beaten egg yolk
1 tablespoon water

Stir together 3/4 cup of the flour and the yeast in a large mixing bowl; set aside. Combine cottage cheese, water, butter, onion, salt, and crushed rosemary in a small saucepan. Heat and stir until warm (120 to 130 degrees F) and butter is almost melted.

Add cottage cheese mixture to flour mixture. Add the whole egg. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Stir in as much of the remaining flour as you can with a wooden spoon.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead in enough of the remaining flour to make a moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic (6 - 8 minutes total). Shape dough into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place about one hour or until about double.

Punch dough down. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Divide dough into 12 balls. Place each in a greased muffin cup or shape into desired dinner roll shapes. Stir together the egg yolk and water, brush onto dough.
Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double (about 30 minutes). Bake in a 400 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden.

Makes 12 rolls.
