DIRECTIONS

  • Stir together all ingredients except flour.
  • Add flour, mixing until it comes together enough to be turned out and kneaded.
  • Knead until dough is smooth and satiny (this can be done on a mixer or bread machine, if preferred).

  • Let dough rest for 15 or 20 minutes and then roll it out to 1/2" thick.
  • Cut with a 4" round cutter.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk.
