Cardamom Pistachio Rolls

Forget classic cinnamon rolls—these Cardamom Pistachio Rolls are spiced with cardamom and studded with salty pistachios, making them a breakfast treat that’s well worth the effort. 

Cardamom Pistachio Rolls
 

Makes 8 rolls
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup (60 grams) warm water (105°F/41°C to 110°F/43°C)
  • 2¼ teaspoons (7 grams) active dry yeast
  • ⅓ cup (67 grams) plus ½ teaspoon (2 grams) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 cup (240 grams) whole milk, room temperature and divided
  • 4 tablespoons (60 grams) fresh lemon juice, divided
  • 1 large egg (50 grams), room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk (19 grams), room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons (8 grams) vanilla extract
  • 3½ cups (438 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon (3 grams) kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons (84 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup (110 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup (57 grams) finely chopped roasted salted shelled pistachios
  • ½ cup (113 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon (6 grams) ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons (4 grams) ground cardamom
  • 1 to 1½ teaspoons (1 to 1.5 grams) lemon zest
  • 1 cup (120 grams) confectioners’ sugar

Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment, whisk together ¼ cup (60 grams) warm water, yeast, and ½ teaspoon (2 grams) granulated sugar by hand. Let stand until mixture is foamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. Add ¾ cup (180 grams) milk, 2 tablespoons (30 grams) lemon juice, egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and remaining ⅓ cup (67 grams) granulated sugar, whisking to combine.
  3. With mixer on medium speed, add flour and salt, beating just until dough comes together. Scrape sides of bowl. Increase mixer speed to medium-high, and beat for 4 minutes. Add softened butter, and beat until dough is smooth and pulls away from sides of bowl, about 6 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, 1½ to 2 hours.
  4. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, stretch dough into a 16×12-inch rectangle using wet hands.
  6. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, pistachios, melted butter, cinnamon, cardamom, and zest. Spread filling onto dough, leaving a ½-inch border. Starting with one long side, roll dough into a log; pinch seam to seal. Place log, seam side down, on work surface. Trim ½ inch off each end. Cut into 8 rolls, and place in prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  8. Bake until light golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool completely.
  9. In a small bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, remaining ¼ cup (60 grams) milk, and remaining 2 tablespoons (30 grams) lemon juice until combined. Place in a resealable plastic bag. Cut corner from bag, and drizzle icing onto rolls.

Notes
Keep your hands wet when stretching dough. This keeps dough from sticking and also keeps you from adding additional flour. Brush any additional flour off dough with a dry pastry brush as you are rolling.

Apple Oat Bread

There’s nothing more comforting than the aroma of this Apple Oat Bread brimming with fresh apple chunks and a symphony of fall spices wafting through your kitchen. We souped up the familiar yeasted apple bread by adding a hefty dose of apple cider to the dough of our Apple Oat Bread for a crisp, tangy kick and a thick Oat Streusel topping for epic crunch.

Apple Oat Bread
 

Makes 1 (9×5-inch) loaf
Ingredients
  • 3⅔ cups (466 grams) bread flour
  • 1 cup (80 grams) old-fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons (36 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (9 grams) kosher salt
  • 1 (0.25-ounce) package (7 grams) instant yeast*
  • 1 teaspoon (2 grams) ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon (1 gram) ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1¼ cups (300 grams) warm apple cider (120°F/49°C to 130°F/54°C)
  • 2 tablespoons (28 grams) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup (121 grams) chopped Honeycrisp apple (about 1 apple)
  • 1 large egg (50 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon (15 grams) water
  • Oat Streusel (recipe follows)
  • Softened butter or apple butter, to serve

Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, salt, yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves by hand.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together warm apple cider and melted butter. Add cider mixture to flour mixture, and beat at medium speed until combined, about 30 seconds. Switch to the dough hook attachment. Beat at low speed until dough is smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Add apple, and beat until most of apple pieces are picked up by dough, about 1 minute.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and knead gently to completely incorporate apple, about 5 times. Lightly oil a large bowl. Shape dough into a smooth ball, and place in bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Spray a 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
  5. Lightly pat dough into a 9-inch circle. Fold top third of dough to center, pressing to seal. Fold bottom third over folded portion, pressing to seal. Fold dough in half lengthwise so long edges meet. Using the heel of your hand, firmly press edges to seal. Place dough, seam side down, in prepared pan. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place (75°F/24°C) until doubled in size, 30 to 45 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon (15 grams) water. Brush top of loaf with egg wash, and sprinkle with Oat Streusel.
  8. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center registers 205°F (96°C), 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with softened butter or apple butter.
