    Think this came from a MasterCook export. I have never tried making them but this recipe seems easy enough. Prep time includes rising time. Have fun!

      I just made these on a whim tonight. They were delicious and pretty easy. I am not much of a baker but made them no problem..... Well they were a bit mishapen but I think it is due to my inexperience. Thank you for posting.

      I've tried several pita bread recipes- the breads consistently balloon as they are supposed to in this recipe. Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. Also added 1/2 tsp of granuslated garlic for flavor. These disappear fast around my house. Thanks for a Great Recipe!
