  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Combine 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 tablespoon powdered milk, and 2 cups all purpose flour. Stir in beaten egg and proofed yeast water. Mix and knead for 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed.
  2. Transfer dough to a greased bowl and cover with greased plastic wrap. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue cooking and stirring until the onion is very tender and dark brown, 15 to 20 minutes more. Stir in red pepper.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  5. Transfer dough to a floured work surface. Pat it into a rectangle; allow dough to rest, covered with greased plastic wrap, for about 10 minutes. Roll dough into a larger rectangle about 1/2-inch thick. Evenly spread onions on dough; roll up from the short end to form a log. With a sharp knife, slice into pinwheels.
  6. Place rolls on prepared baking sheet; let rise a second time, about 30 minutes. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

I made these to give this recipe a picture. They are very good. You will need more than 2 cups flour - I added additional flour 1/2 cup at a time, using a total of about 3 1/2 cups. Also - yo...

More flour is definitely needed -- I used almost 4 cups. Any too many onions -- I used 3 and still thought it was too much. Using 1/2 tsp. of the crushed red pepper packs quite a bit of heat -...

The trick to this one is to cook the onions at low heat for a long time until they are dark golden, sweet and caramelized! They make a delicious filling that way and you will be surprised at how...

These are quite tasty little rolls! The dough was one of the easiest doughs I have made yet. It was easy to roll out and rose beautifully. The end product was perfect. I served them alongsid...

I didn't have dry milk powder so I used about 3/4 cups of water and a 1/4 cup of milk. I also ended up adding 4cups of flour which was a bit too much - dough was a little tough. I used 3.5 sma...

I made these for Thanksgiving last year and plan to make them again. This year I will try to make them vegan.
