    Gaia22's Note:

    These are Excellent! This recipe takes some time to accomplish, but the end result is a little magic in the kitchen and so satisfying as a cook! The cooking time is per batch - this makes 24 and you'll probably have to do at least 4 batches in your oven depending on the size (of your oven). At least, much of the prep time is inactive time while waiting for the dough to rise. All in all, they are pretty easy to make (if not on a time schedule).

      This was not just bread baking, but an adventure! Never had I made pita's before and so wanted to give my hand a try at it. My lessons learned: Patting the dough into circles, instead of rolling is easier and doesn't stick to the counter. Handling the dough too much results in a flatter pita. Pat the rounds thinner than you would think. A higher oven temperature encourages the 'puff daddies' that I so eagerly desired. Better overcooked than undercooked. Mine probably looked and tasted more like an artisan bread, but in time I have every intention of perfecting my technique. Now, I'm off to find something to fill them with. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

      I cut the recipe in half and made in my Kitchen Aid mixer. The only problem I had with the recipe was that the first two that I baked at (375 F) did not fully puff up. The balance of the recipe I baked at 500 F for 2 minutes on one side, and 1 1/2 minute on the other. They looked like ballons when I took them out of the oven, of course they collapsed as they cooled, but it made a good size pocket on the inside! Thanks for sharing!
