Our very talented Chef #1244526 created this recipe (a modification of another of Joe's recipes) to substitute for the commercial products. I am posting it with his permission. Joe says that the trick is to let the dough rest after rolling it out so it does not shrink in size, and then to dock it with either a pizza docker or a fork. The same technique can be used with any bread dough to create these popular thins. Please note that the software rounds certain quantities, so I listed Joe's very precise measurements immediately after certain ingredients.
From Red Star Yeast. I have not tried this, but with the interest in gluten-free recipes, I thought this would be of interest. The Red Star Yeast people say you must use active dry yeast - instant yeast apparently does not work in gluten-free recipes. They state that this will get tangier as it gets older.
This recipe comes from King Arthur's website. The dough will remind you of choux pastry, but it's made with gluten-free tapioca starch, which is available in Asian and Latin markets. KA recommends storing them at room temperature. They should be served warm, so reheat briefly in the microwave if they've been made ahead of time. I just love these with a glass of wine!
This recipe comes from a Sunset magazine cookbook. It's a great way of using up starter that you would otherwise be dumping when refreshing your starter. Start it before you go to bed, and you'll be ready to go in the morning. Yield is approximate - the size of your eggs, the ambient humidity, the vigor of your starter, the exact size of your pan, will all affect yield.
I love the feta dill bread by Barb Gertz, but I wanted to convert it to a sourdough version. This is what I came up with. Time is approximate, as starters can be variable, and does not include time for sponge to develop. Try baking this as rolls for sandwiches.
From The Festive Bread Book by Kathy Cutler. I made this the first time in honor of a Swiss colleague who was interning with us. I asked her if it was like birnbrot at home and she laughed and said that it was not, but that it was very good. I'm not sure what the difference is, as I've never had it when in Switzerland. But it's a very nice Christmas bread and has the added benefit of using dried pears, a convenience when fresh pears are not in season.
This recipe is from Stephanie of "A Year of Slow Cookin" fame. She used her crockpot everyday in 2008, eventually published a couple of cookbooks. This was a very delicious dessert. I made it in my 3 qt slow cooker. See Notes in recipe for comments. Cooking time does not include chilling.
From Cooks Illustrated magazine, made to accompany beef tenderloin cooked in the CI method. I selected this flavored butter because the chives had just come up, harbinger of spring. It would be good on anything that you like with blue cheese.
Quince paste is similar to a fruit leather, only a bit thicker. It's traditionally served in Spain with a slice of manchego cheese. I like this method of preparation, which I find easier than peeling and coring prior to cooking. I've modified this a bit from the original, found on epicurious.com . Prep time does not include chilling.
