For raclett with the family on christmas eve I volunteered to bring some bread. I decided fastly, that I want to bake Sacaduros. But then I feel that I would like to bring something with whole wheat, too. Simple rolls are to boring for Christmas I thought but then I remember something I saw last year on Cindystar: beautiful Christmas tree rolls.
They are not so difficult to make: Rolls in the shape of stars in different sizes are pilled on each other and fixed with a wooden skewer.
These little Christmas trees are a nice Eye catcher for the Christmas table
Christmas tree rolls
- 155g flour Type 550
- 35g wheat, fresh ground
- 1 g fresh yeast
- 9 g Honey
- 320 g water
- 500g wheat(fresh ground)
- 100g yoghurt
- 10g honey
- 10g salt
- 5g fresh yeast
- poppy seeds
Mix water, flour and yeast for the poolish and ferment it one hour at room temperature, then put it in the fridge overnight (12 to 16 hours).
The next morning: Mix all ingredients for the dough and knead it for about 3 min at low speed, then 6 min on high speed until medium gluten development.
Ferment the dough for 60 min.
Divide the dough into 5 pieces of 80g, 5 pieces of 40g, and each 5 pieces of 10g and 5g. Form them to light balls. Rest them for 20 min. In the meantime roll the dough and cut Stars with an diameter of 5 cm, 6 cm and 8 cm.
Now flatten the balls and make a cut in the middle of the dough. Rotate the card 1/3 and cut again, repeat it for a third time, leaving six points in the middle (see picture). Turn the dough inside out, so the points are now outside, forming a star. Place the small dough balls (5g or 10g) into the hole that forms in the middle
Wet the surface of the stars and roll in the seeds. Proof for 1 hour.
In the meantime heat the baking stone at 250°C.
Bake the big stars for 20 min, the small ones for about 10 min with steam. Keep an eye on especially on the small stars because the time they need to brown vary depending on their size.
Let them cool on a wired rack.
After cooling pile 5 stars with degrading size and fix them with a wooden skewer cut in the right length.
