Cheese Rolls


Liza told me that her brother Louie loved the cheese rolls from Mary Grace's. So I tried their cheese rolls, just to see if they're really that good. One bite and I was hooked -- they really are THAT good! =) Fluffy bread with cheese inside, and a generous sprinkling of sugar on top. I am not sure about the type of cheese... cheddar I think.

I have been craving for Mary Grace's cheese rolls ever since. Since I couldn't afford to keep buying them (pricey at P24/piece), I searched my cookbooks for a cheese roll recipe. Just so I can have them anytime.

Ingredients:
1 T yeast
1 T sugar
1/3 C lukewarm water

3 eggs and 2 egg yolks
1/3 c water
1/2 c oil

4 1/4 c all purpose flour
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c powdered milk
1 t salt

1. Mix together yeast, sugar and water. Let mixture rest for 10 minutes, until you see bubbles or "scum" forming on surface of mixture.
**Make sure that the water is warm enough. Otherwise, the dough will not rise properly. Warm means that the water is hot enough to stick your finger in it, but not hot enough to burn you.

2. Mix together eggs, yolks, water and oil. Add this to the yeast mixture.

3. Mix together the remaining ingredients. Make a well in the center, then pour in the liquids. Blend well and knead until smooth and satiny.

4. Let the dough rise in room temperature until double in bulk (approximately 1 1/2 hours.) Punch down.

5. Divide the dough into 40 pieces (25 grams each).

6. Flatten each piece by rolling it out with a rolling pin then spread with soft butter.

7. Place a slice of cheese stick (1/2 inch wide) on the center and fold each end over, like rolling lumpia. Pinch the ends together to seal.

8. Arrange on a well-greassed cookie sheet and let rise until double in bulk.

9. Brush with milk. Bake at 325oF for 15 minutes.

  • Hi, I want to try this out. Just a couple of questions: what kind of cheese did you use, and the milk for brushing at the end, is that powdered milk? Thanks!
