  • 2 packages (1/4 oz each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110o to 115o)
  • 1/2 tsp plus 2/3 cup sugar, divided
  • 18 cardamom pods
  • 1-1/3 cups warm milk (110o to 115o)
  • 2/3 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • icing:
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 5 tbsp milk


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add 1/2 teaspoon sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Remove seeds from cardamom pods; coarsely crush seeds. Add the seeds, milk, butter, shortening, eggs, salt, remaining sugar and 5 cups of flour to yeast mixture. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough in half. Shape each portion into 18 balls. Roll each into an 8-in. rope; coat with cinnamon. Tie in a knot and tuck ends under. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine icing ingredients; drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 3 dozen.
