Serves 12

2/3 cup warm water

2 tablespoons molasses

½ cup ground flax seeds, plus extra for sprinkling

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, room temperature

2½ cups all-purpose flour

2½ teaspoons instant yeast

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine all ingredients. Mix on low until combined, then increase speed to high and mix for another 2 minutes.

Remove the paddle, then cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Allow to rest for 1 hour, or until the dough is puffy. Meanwhile, coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into 12 pieces, rolling each into a ball. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Cover and allow to rise in a warm place until puffy, about 1 hour.

Toward the end of rising, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Moisten the tops of the rolls lightly with water, then sprinkle with ground flax seeds. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.
