Recipe by Shaye

I found this in a recipe book shortly after trying a similar version in a restaurant. Rubbing the garlic on the edge of the bread makes all the difference in the world!

Shaye -- Thank you so much for this great recipe! This was one of those rare times when I followed a recipe to the letter -- it turned out perfect. I will take a photo next time, as they were beautiful, but they tasted even better than they looked. Yum.
