    Mini Rolled Cachitos

    Shrinking the famous Venezuelan breakfast treat into an easy-to-chomp-on finger food, Mini Rolled Cachitos are sweet crescent rolls filled with black forest ham baked to golden perfection to be enjoyed in three bites or less. And just a note: we love these baking sheets, you'll get even and perfect browning every time. 


    Ingredients
    1/4
    cup
    sugar
    1/2
    teaspoon
    salt
    1/2
    cup
    milk
    1/4
    cup
    vegetable oil
    2 1/3
    cups
    all purpose flour
    1
    tablespoon
    yeast
    1
    egg, beaten
    1 1/2
    tablespoons
    unsalted butter
    1 1/2
    pounds
    sliced ham, each slice rolled lengthwise and halved
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 115ºF, or until the oven is just getting warm.
    Add sugar, salt, oil, milk, flour and yeast to bowl of stand mixer with hook attachment. Mix until ingredients are thoroughly combined.
    Add egg and continue mixing until dough forms.
    Remove dough and add to a well oiled bowl. Let dough rise in oven for 30 to 45 minutes.
    Knead dough by hand on a well floured surface and divide in thirds. Roll first part into an 8-inch circle and cut into 8 equal triangles, similar to pizza slices.
    One slice at a time, add roll of ham to widest part of triangle and roll from the wide end to the point making a crescent shape. Place on lightly sprayed cookie sheet and repeat with remaining dough, triangles and ham. Place baking sheet in warmed oven and let crescents rise for 15 to 20 minutes.
    Remove crescents from oven and raise oven temperature to 350ºF.
    Brush butter onto tops of rolls and bake for 15 minutes until they are golden. Serve warm.
