Cardomom Buns

Cardamom Buns

These are yummy! I found the recipe on the Sons of Norway website and made them for a family reunion recently. The first recipe I have a picture to show you the final product!

Cardamom Buns (Kardemommeboller)

2 cups milk
1/2 cup butter
1 package active dry yeast
1/4 cup water, warm
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
6 cardamom pods, remove seeds and crush
7 cup flour

Scald milk. Add butter and let stand until melted and milk is slightly cooled. Soften yeast in warm water with 1 Tbsp. sugar added. In a large bowl add remaining sugar, salt, and cardamom. Pour in lukewarm milk mixture. Add yeast and enough flour to make a stiff dough. Work thoroughly. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rise until double in bulk. Punch down and shape into balls--the size of ping pong balls. Place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Cover with a towel and let rise until double in bulk. Bake in 450 degree oven for 5 minutes (yes, only 5 min!) until lightly browned, and brush with butter while still hot.
