Peanut Butter Pretzel Rolls

Peanut Butter Pretzel Rolls
Suzy's recipe from the 2019 National Festival of Breads in Manhattan, Kansas, home of Kansas Wheat. Easy, delicious and dependable results using quality ingredients from Red Star Yeast and King Arthur Flour. Delicious served with soft butter and Unicoi Preserves.
Servings
14 rolls
Ingredients
Dough
  • 2 cups warm water (110-115 degrees)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 oz. pack Red Star Platinum Yeast
  • 1/2 cup Powdered peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon, plus 2 teaspoons, divided vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter, unsalted, melted
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 5 - 5-1/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
Boiling Solution

Topping
  • 1 large egg yolk, plus 2 teaspoons water
  • 1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

Servings: rolls
Instructions
  1. In bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook, combine water, honey and yeast; let proof 5 minutes.
  2. Mix in powdered peanut butter, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, butter and salt. Gradually add enough flour to form a soft dough that pulls away from sides of bowl.
  3. Knead dough with hook 3 – 4 minutes to form a smooth dough. Grease large bowl with 2 teaspoons vegetable oil. Place dough in bowl, turning to coat. Cover; let rise in warm place until doubled.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F. Deflate dough and turn out on floured work surface. Scale 3-ounce pieces of dough; shape into smooth rolls. Place rolls on a 12” x 18” pan lined with nonstick baking mat.
  5. In 4-quart or larger Dutch oven, combine water and baking soda, bring to a boil. Boil 3 rolls at a time for 45 – 60 seconds, turning occasionally. Use slotted spoon to remove rolls to pan.
  6. Using a sharp knife, cut an “X” in the top of rolls. Beat together egg yolk and water; brush on rolls. Sprinkle on peanuts first, then pretzel salt.
  7. Bake on middle rack of oven 20 – 25 minutes until dark golden brown and internal temperature is 205°F – 210°F. Remove rolls to a rack and cool. Serve with butter and Unicoi Preserves.

Servings:
Instructions
Sauce:
  1. Melt butter and whisk in onion powder and seasoned salt. Set aside and make sandwiches.
Sandwich:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice rolls in half horizontally so you have a top and bottom half, not tearing rolls apart. Place bottom half of rolls on a baking sheet. Spread the bottom layer of rolls with about half a jar of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread, then layer the shaved ham, add a layer of sliced cheese, then the shaved turkey and another layer of sliced cheese.
  2. Spread yellow mustard lightly on the cut side of the bun tops, then place it on top of the meat and cheese and bottom bun.
  3. Use a silicone brush and brush the sauce on the assembled sandwiches.
  4. Wrap with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the buns.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle with finely minced parsley and serve with apple slices.
  6. Make ahead directions: Assemble sandwiches but do not sauce them. Place sandwiches back in original Kings Hawaiian tray and bag, store in refrigerator or cooler until needed. When ready to serve, simply make the sauce then brush sandwiches with it and follow above baking directions. Sandwiches may need to bake a little longer with the foil on depending on how cold they are.

Biscuits

Biscuits

Biscuits
Easy to make, delicious biscuits that serve as the perfect jelly delivery device!
Servings Prep Time
6 biscuits 10 minutes
Cook Time
8-10 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon butter melted, for brushing biscuits
  •  Flour for dusting work surface
Servings: biscuits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Combine lemon juice and milk in measuring cup. You just made buttermilk! Set aside.
  2. Measure flour into bowl and add butter. Using a pastry blender (or two knives), cut the cold butter into the flour until the mixture looks like small peas.
  3. Stir milk into the flour mixture until it is barely combined. It's okay for it to look shaggy.
  4. Sprinkle flour over a clean work surface and turn the dough out onto it. Gently fold the dough together 4 times, just until barely held together. Pat dough out to 1 inch thickness. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits by pressing straight down (twisting results in flat biscuits!) Re-pat dough until you have used it all. I got 6 biscuits, your results may vary depending on the thickness of your biscuits. Place on baking sheet, about 1 inch apart and bake on center rack of the preheated oven for 6 minutes.
  5. Remove biscuits from the oven, brush with melted butter and bake for an additional 2-4 minutes until lightly brown.
  6. Serve with Unicoi Preserves and take compliments on your biscuit baking prowess.

Cheddar Cheese Pie Crust
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Cabot Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar

  • 2 Tablespoons Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Pinch Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons All purpose flour, Optional
Servings: people
Instructions
Pie Crust Instructions:
  1. In a food processor, combine flour, salt and butter. Pulse to combine until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Add shredded cheese, pulse 3 times. Add 3 Tablespoons ice water and cider vinegar. Pulse to combine, just until the dough is moistened and will stick together when pressed with your fingers. Turn the dough out on to your pastry board and knead just until it comes together. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, longer is better.
To bake pie crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into an approximately 12” circle/oval. This does not have to be a perfect shape, just roll it out so it’s a uniform thickness. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until lightly golden. Transfer to a cool racking and cool before serving. Break the pie crust into irregular size pieces to serve with the Apple Pie Sundaes.
To make apple pie filling:
  1. Melt butter and light brown sugar in a large sauce pan and cook over medium high heat until combined. Add all remaining ingredients except flour and continue to cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently for 10-12 minutes until sauce is reduced and apples are tender, but still have a little bite to them.
  2. Optional: If your apples give off a lot of liquid, stir in the flour and continue to cook a few minutes to thicken the sauce. If your apples weren't very juicy, you won't need to do this.
Assembly
  1. Scoop Laura Lynn Vanilla Ice Cream into individual serving bowls, top with warm apples and a few pieces of cheddar cheese pie crust.

Puffy Pancake

Puffy Pancake

Puffy Pancake
My interpretation of Pannekoeken, a delicious Dutch pancake that puffs up in the oven and rapidly deflates when serving. Baked in a beautiful Finex Cast Iron skillet and served with Unicoi Preserves, this is an easy breakfast or brunch dish that is delicious and impressive.
Ingredients
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup All purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • Pinch Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  •  Powdered Sugar
  •  Unicoi Preserves
Servings: 2
Instructions
  1. Place a 10 inch cast iron skillet on the middle rack of your oven, then preheat oven and skillet to 425 degrees. *Photo by Finex
    2. Whisk the eggs, then add milk, flour and a pinch of salt. This will be a thin and runny batter, so don't worry and prepared to be amazed!
    3.When oven reaches 425 degrees, carefully pull the hot skillet out of the oven and add the butter. When butter has melted and is sizzling, pour the pancake batter into the pan.
    4. Place the pan back on the middle rack of your oven and set timer for 20 minutes. Pancake is done when its puffy and golden
    5. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired. Serve with your favorite flavors of Unicoi Preserves (we chose Salted Caramel Peach and Strawberry Vanilla Spread but Vineyard Spread is delicious here too!) and your favorite breakfast meat. The saltiness of bacon is the perfect complement to Puffy Pancake and Unicoi Preserves.

Servings Prep Time
8 slices 30 minutes
Cook Time Passive Time
60 minutes 30 minutes
Ingredients
Cheddar cheese pie crust
  • 1 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup Cabot Farmhouse Reserve Cheddar
  • 1/4 cup cold water
Apple Pie Filling
  • 8 cups Georgia Grown golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and sliced.
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
Streusel topping
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, cold, cut into slices
Servings: slices
Instructions
Cabot Cheddar Pie Crust
  1. Add flour and salt to the bowl of a food processor and pulse to combine. Add cold butter and pulse until the dough looks like coarse meal.
  2. Slowly add the cold water and pulse until mixture just begins to hold together. Add additional cold water by the teaspoon if necessary to get the mixture to the desired consistency. Dough should not be wet or sticky.
  3. Add cheese and pulse until combined.
  4. Pour dough on to plastic wrap and form a round disk. Wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or overnight. Do ahead tip: Dough can be frozen up to 1 month, just thaw before using.
Pie Filling
  1. In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine the apple slices and all pie filling ingredients except flour. Microwave the filling, uncovered, for 5 minutes. This will help soften the apples and get their juices flowing a bit. Stir lightly to combine.
    2. Mix 1/4 cup flour in to the apple and spice mixture.
    Streusel topping
    1. In a separate bowl, stir together 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour. Using a pastry blender, cut 1 stick of cold butter into the flour mixture until it's crumbly and resembles small pebbles.
      To assemble pie:
      1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with a rack centered in the middle of the oven and the top rack removed to make room for the paper grocery bag. Remove the pie dough from the refrigerator. If the dough has been chilling longer than 30 minutes, let it warm up about 10 minutes and roll into a 12-13 inch circle.
        2. Place the crust in to a 9-inch pie pan and let it settle gently in the pan without stretching it, as this could cause the crust to shrink as it bakes. Crimp the top edges of the dough to make it look pretty.
        3.Spoon the apple filling and juice into the pie crust, then spread the streusel topping over the filling.
        4. Place the apple pie in a brown paper grocery bag, laid on its side and set on a baking sheet. Baking in the bag will prevent any bubbling juice from making a big mess and smoking. Fold the bag and staple it in three or four places to close the bag.
        5. Bake for 50 minutes. Carefully remove the pie from the bag and place it back on the baking sheet. Cover the crust with foil and bake 10-15 more minutes to brown the streusel topping.
        6. When the topping is browned to your liking, remove and cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes, longer is better.
        7.

We took your favorite PB & J sandwich and turned it into muffins.
Servings
16 muffins
Cook Time
20 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 4 oz. jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/2 cup Chopped salted peanuts
Servings: muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease your muffin tin or to ensure success, line the muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir the sugar, peanut butter and oil into the dry mixture until it looks like a sandy dough. Add the milk and eggs and mix until moistened using an electric mixer. Be careful not to overbeat, adding too much air will give your muffins tunnels and peaks. You don't want tunnels and peaks.
3. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin liners half full with the batter. Spoon 2 teaspoons of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread into the middle of each muffin. Finish each muffin by dividing the batter over each one, making sure to cover the Strawberry Vanilla Spread.
4. Chop peanuts and sprinkle evenly over top of each muffin.
5. Bake for 18-20 minutes and cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove to wire rack to finish cooling.

Heart Tarts

Heart Tarts

Heart Tarts
These delicious heart shaped tarts are perfect for sharing with those you love.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 Package Laura Lynn Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 1 Jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  •  Sprinkles
Servings: 8
Instructions
  1. Assemble your ingredients. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
    2. Lightly flour your clean countertop. Unroll 1 pie crust and using a rolling pin, roll out slightly and seal any cracks. Then, using a 3- 1/2 inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many hearts as you can. Re-flour your counter top if necessary. Gather the scraps of dough into a ball, then, roll out the dough to the same thickness as previous and cut more hearts. My dough yielded 16 hearts, this will vary based on what size cutter you use. Its ideal to get an even number because each tart takes two hearts.
    3.To make your Heart Tarts, place half the hearts on your baking sheet. Then, top one heart with 1 teaspoon of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread. Brush edges of tart lightly with water, then place a second heart on top of the first tart. With a fork, firmly press edges to seal.
    4. Using the fork, poke a few holes in the top crust of the tart to let steam escape.
    5. Place on middle rack of oven and bake 8-10 minutes, until lightly browned. These are dark brown, don't be like me, keep an eye on them. Move to wire rack to cool.
    6. Make the glaze while the Heart Tarts are cooling. Place 1/4 cup powdered sugar into a small bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of milk and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir until smooth. Spoon the glaze over the cooled Heart Tarts, then top with sprinkles.
    7. Spread the love and share your Heart Tarts with friends and family.

  • 1 Tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 oz. Cabot Extra Sharp Cheddar
  • 1 cup Heavy whipping cream
Servings:
Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees with rack in upper third of oven. Cut cheese into small cubes.
2. Measure the flour, baking powder, and kosher salt into the work bowl of your food processor and pulse to combine, then add the cheese cubes and process until the cheese is finely chopped. Add the heavy whipping cream, and pulse until the dough comes together. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface.
3. Roll dough to approx. 1 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. Tip: To get the best rise, cut straight down, don't twist the cutter.
4. Place into a lightly greased cast iron skillet, with biscuits touching. My pan held 9 biscuits and I had a little dough left over.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Baking time will depend on how thick you have rolled them, so keep an eye on them!
6. Serve warm with butter and Unicoi Preserves. Leftovers? Split them in half and toast them under the broiler. Extra delicious!
