Use a basic bread dough for these rolls. See my Best Homemade Bread Recipe, Ukrainian Style under Traditional Ukrainian Dishes.
- Young green beet leaves
Wash the beet leaves well, spin dry and allow to sit and wilt a little.
While waiting, spray Pam or grease a cookie sheet with oil.
When your dough is ready, pinch off or cut dough into small bite-size pieces.
Roll the dough by hand and wrap a beet leaf loosely around it. Place on the greased cookie sheet, side by side. You only want one layer. Place in a warm place and let rise, until dough has doubled. The pan will look full.
Bake in a preheated 325F oven for 25 – 30 minutes.
These rolls can be eaten fresh. Delicious with a cream sauce of thick cream, fried onions and dill.
These rolls also freeze well.
