Thanksgiving Week

I think Teddy won't be moving far from the kitchen this week.

And though she is tired...

She is still licking her chops.

And staying put.

This is a wonderful roll recipe if you are looking for a good one. In the bowl of a mixer pour 1/2 cup of milk and 1 1/2 cups of water.

Then add 2 eggs.

And 4 tablespoons of butter. Mix all of this together.

Then add 1 teaspoon of salt.

Add 1/2 cup of sugar.

Continue mixing.

Then add 4 teaspoons of instant rise yeast.

You need 6 cups of bread flour.

And 1/2 cup of wheat gluten. This is important because the wheat gluten is what gives these rolls their chewy texture.

Need for about 10 minutes.

Cover with plastic wrap and proof until doubled in bulk.

I forgot the camera for a while here! After the dough has risen, cut and shape into balls slightly larger than a golf ball and place them in oiled pans. Let them proof again until they are touching each other. Then bake at 375 degrees until golden brown. This takes about 30 minutes. When they are removed from the oven they are brushed with melted butter.

Don't these look delicious?

This recipe makes approximately 3 dozen.

I want one of those buns!
I´m not sure we can buy gluten that way here, but we do have flour with extra gluten in it. It looks delicious!
Have a great day now!

I am fearing to get addicted to

a) photos of cute Teddy and

b) photos of your exquisite meals.

There are worse things than that...

On my I'd love to eat those. They're dripping with gluten, though, and would make me ill. But, I'll be eating them with my eyes.:)

Kisses for Teddy!

I'm starting my own word document that's Octoberfarm recipes. It'll have to suffice until you make a cookbook (hint hint). :-) p.s. When you do it, add in the garden shots and Teddy and the trips to New England too. Wow!
