3-1/2 cups Our Family® All Purpose Flour plus additional for dusting
1/2 teaspoon Our Family® Coarse Kosher Sea Salt

1. Spray large bowl with cooking spray. In medium skillet, toast almonds over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until fragrant and golden brown, stirring frequently; spread on plate to cool.

2. In small saucepan, heat 3/4 cup milk over medium-low heat 2 minutes (temperature of milk should not be above 110°). Whisk in yeast and 1 tablespoon granulated sugar; let stand 5 minutes.

Attach dough hook to mixer; with mixer on medium-low speed, add egg, 1/4 cup almond paste, butter, 1/2 tablespoon orange zest, yeast mixture and 1/4 cup water. With mixer on medium speed, knead dough 3 minutes or until soft and dough comes together.

Sprinkle dough with brown sugar and 1/2 cup almonds; starting from long end, roll up dough. Cut dough crosswise into 12 (1-inch) pieces. Place pieces, cut side up, in single layer in prepared dish; lightly spray with cooking spray. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand 30 minutes.
