Food Processor Buns

These homemade buns are made in the food processor. They pair perfectly with Harvest Crew Sloppy Joes.


3 cups bread or all-purpose flour (may be part whole wheat flour)
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 (¼ ounce) package instant yeast
3 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine, cubed
1 cup lukewarm water (90°F)


  1. In bowl of food processor fitted with dough blade, add flour, sugar, salt, yeast and butter. Place lid on processor and pulse 10 seconds.
  2. Begin processing, pouring 1 cup warm water through tube. When dough forms a ball, stop adding water. All may not be needed. Process dough an additional 60 seconds to knead.
  3. Remove dough and smooth into a ball; cover with bowl and let rest 15 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into 8 buns and flatten into 3 ½” disks. Place buns two inches apart on greased or parchment-lined baking sheet. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled. Near the end of the rise, preheat oven to 400°F.
  5. Bake 12 - 15 minutes, until golden and internal temperature registers 190°F - 195°F. Remove buns to rack and cool before slicing.

Yield: 8 large buns.
