This lightly sweetened Star Bread is as delicious as it is beautiful.

Ingredients

12 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls, thawed
4-5 tablespoons jam or chocolate-hazelnut spread
1-2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon coarse sugar
powdered sugar

Instructions

Spray counter with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 3 rolls together and roll them into a 10-inch circle. Let rest while you repeat this step to make 3 more 10-inch circles.

Carefully lift the first circle onto a sprayed baking sheet. Spread a heaping tablespoon of jam or chocolate hazelnut spread thinly on the circle leaving a clean, 1/2-inch edge. Carefully lift the second circle of dough on to the top of the first, press the edges together firmly. Repeat the layering process with remaining circles, leaving the top circle bare.

Leaving a 2-inch circle in the center uncut, cut 16 equal strips from the center to the edge through all the layers.

Take two adjacent strips by the ends and twist them away from each other 2 ½ times. Pull the two edges together and pinch making one point on the star. Repeat to make 7 more points.

Cover with sprayed wrap and let rise 30 minutes in a warm place. Uncover and re-pinch points.

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350⁰F. Cover with foil after 20 minutes to prevent over browning. Remove from oven, brush with butter and sprinkle coarse sugar in the center. Let cool slightly before sprinkling with powdered sugar over the entire star.

      I’m afraid that would be too long to leave it in the refrigerator. I think it would raise too much and you would lose the detail of the star. But I think if you made it and baked it and maybe even under bake it, you could finish baking it or warm it that morning. I hope that helps you! You can also call our Customer Satisfaction number at 1-800-876-7333 and talk with one of our baking experts, if you need to. Happy Baking!
