I loved the idea of 2 ingredient dough the second it came out. How easy and genius to be able to make something so quickly and easily, right? So off to the store I went to pick up a tub of non-fat greek yogurt! I came back home and 2 hours later (it took a few batches before I gave up) I was done. None of the dough really seemed to look like anything I had seen online and it sure didn’t come together like dough for me. It was super sticky, got everywhere, and my kitchen was a mess! I gave up for a few months before I tried it again. I did some research online and looked for some tips and tricks on how to make this dough. Finally, it worked! Thank goodness because I really just wanted to make all the goodies everyone was making. Well, last week when I wanted to make something with 2 ingredient dough I only had the new Two Good line on hand. I figured, it was still yogurt so why not give it a try? Next thing you know we’ve got Two Good 2 Ingredient Dough blueberry rolls!
After my fiasco the first time around with the 2 ingredient dough I’m glad I did a little online research on how to make this work for me. Here are the things that worked for me to make the dough easier to work with.
Tips and Tricks
- Use less yogurt
- Let the dough sit in the fridge for at least an hour
- Use a stand mixer if possible
- Use parchment paper or silicone liners
The first one on the list is probably the most important. I started using less yogurt instead of the 1:1 ratio that the recipe calls for. I used about 7 ounces or yogurt for every 1 cup of flour. This made the dough less less watery and easier to work with.
After mixing the dough, I know wrap it in plastic wrap and let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so before I start to work with it. It makes the dough easier to work with and less sticky.
This tip is definitely my favorite. If you have a stand mixer, use it! It makes the process so much easier than mixing it together in a bowl by hand. Unless you’re looking for a nice arm workout, use your mixer. Another great thing about using the mixer is that you can do other things while it’s mixing the dough together.
And lastly, line your baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liners if available. It makes taking the rolls (or whatever you end up making) much easier to take off the baking sheet. I also use parchment paper to roll the dough. I put the dough down on a silicone liner, a piece of parchment paper on top, and roll the dough with my pizza dough roller. This way the dough doesn’t stick to the roller and you don’t have to worry about adding any extra flour. So, less calories and less mess!
Let me know if you have any other tips and tricks for this dough!
For this particular dough I used the new Dannon line called Two Good. It’s a low fat and low carb flavored Greek yogurt. This is a great way a little bit of sweetness to the dough which is great if you’re making something that needs that. When I make this dough, it’s usually for some type of sweet morning scone or roll so this is perfect. Of all the flavors I’ve tried the mixed berry is hands down my favorite. I had fresh blueberries on hand from the farmers market so I added some of those in there and the rolls turned out perfect!Print
