Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
For the dough, warm the Whole Milk (1 cup) and Granulated Sugar (1/4 cup) until just above room temperature. Sprinkle in the yeast and let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes.
step 2
Add the yeast mixture and Butter (1/3 cup) into a standing mixer with the kneading attachment. Add the All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups), Salt (1 tsp), and Active Dry Yeast (1/2 Tbsp) all at once and turn the mixer on medium until it comes together and forms a ball.
step 3
Place in a oiled bowl and cover with a dry cloth. Let rise for an hour.
step 4
In a food processor, pulse the Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup), Pistachios (1/2 cup), Ground Cinnamon (1 tsp), and Ground Cardamom (1/2 tsp) together until the pistachios are rice-sized.
step 5
Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a long rectangle (about 18x10-inch). Pour the Butter (1/4 cup) all over the dough from edge to edge.
step 6
Sprinkle on the pistachio mixture edge to edge and roll the dough from the long edge to the long edge, pinching the dough together at the end.
step 7
Cut the rolls about an inch thick and place onto a buttered 9x12-inch dish about an inch apart. Cover and let rise again for 15 minutes.
step 8
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 9
Bake the rolls for 20 minutes.
