Italion Bread Sticks, Soft

Hi you all. Today's recipe is *Italian Bread Sticks*. I made these to go with our Spaghetti dinner. At my house spaghetti is simple, (I have a pickie fiance) that comes out of a jar. I use my meatballs and cooked Italian Sausage links, cut up and of course spaghetti noodles. When you make these, make sure you use the shredded Parmesan cheese, not the can stuff. As you can see in the pic. I used the can. Its not as pretty. It still tastes really good. Well, here it is.



* Italian Bread Sticks*





Serves: 24





1 Cup warm water, 70° To 80°
3Tbls. butter, Softened1 1/2 Tsp. salt
3 Cups bread flour
3 Tbls. sugar
1½ Tsp. Italian seasoning
1½ Tsp. garlic powder
2 1/4 Tsp. active dry yeast


Topping:


3 Tbls. butter, Melted
3 Tbls. Parmesan cheese, Grated
3 Tbls. Cheddar Cheese, Grated



Place all dough ingredients in the bread machine pan according to manufacturers direction. Select dough setting. When dough cycle is complete, turn out onto very lightly floured board and divide dough in half. Cut each half into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a 4 to 6" rope. If you want to get fancy, you can take two ropes and bread together. If you do, the nutrition value will be doubled.Place 2" apart onto greased baking sheets. You can also use parchment paper on baking sheet instead of a greased baking sheet.Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350°F. for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately brush with butter and sprinkle with the two cheeses. Place them back in the oven for about 2 minutes to melt the cheese better.

*Home Made Cream Cheese Danish*



Servings: 18

Note: When the dough rises they look like a cone. Also I use more filling than called for, so I double the mixture.

Dough:
3¾-4¼ Cups flour
3/4 Cup sugar, divided
2 1/4 Oz. packages active dry yeast, or use 2 1/2 tsp.bread machine yeast
1 1/4 Tsp. salt
3/4 Cup milk
1/2 Cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 egg

Filling:
1 8 Oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 egg yolk
1/2 Tsp. vanilla

Glaze:
1 Cup powdered sugar
1/2 Tsp. vanilla
3 tsp. water, More if needed

In a large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, yeast and salt. Using a saucepan, heat the milk, water and butter to 120*F-130*F. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the egg and 1/2 cup flour; beat on high for 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Cover and refrigerate the dough for about 2 hours. Now turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 18 pieces. Form each piece into a ball; roll each into a 15" rope. Holding one end of the rope, loosely wrap dough around, forming a coil. Tuck the end under; pinch to seal. Place the coils about 1½ inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, for about 1 hour.

In a small mixing bowl, Mix together the cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla and remaining sugar; beat until smooth. Use the back of a spoon, to make a 1" wide indentation in the center of each coil, Carefully. Spoon a rounded tablespoon of cream cheese mixture into each indentation. Bake at 400*F. for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheets to wire racks to cool. In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sugar, vanilla and enough water to get a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled rolls. Store in the fridge, and enjoy!

Chapatti (Flat Bread)

The recipe for today is Chapatti. This is really easy to make. Its even a little fun, but then again, I love to cook. This bread only has 3 ingredients. I'm thinking about trying something with this recipe. I'll let you know if I come up with something good. Well here you go.



*Chapatti (Flat Bread*



Servings: 8



2 1/8 Cups Whole Wheat Flour, Or Flour Of Choice
2 Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Warm Water



Mix the flour and the salt in a medium bowl. Make a well in the middle and add water. Mix until you can gather dough into a ball. Add more water if needed. Turn out onto floured surface and kneed for about 8-10 minutes. Cover with plastic (so it don't get dry) for about 30 minutes to 2 hours. Divide dough into eight balls and flatten each ball into an 8" round, using a rolling pin. Don't turn the chapatti round over to the other side when rolling them out.Don't stack the uncooked rounds on top of each other and keep each round covered in plastic. Heat on tava or a cast iron griddle or skillet on medium heat. When griddle is hot, place a chapatti round on griddle top side down. Cook for 10 seconds, gently flip over. Cook on the other side for about one minute. Turn chapatti back to the other side and cook for one minute longer. At this time the chapatti should start to balloon. You can help the bubble along by gently pressing the bubble.Use a cloth or paper towel, wadded up to protect your fingers from burning. Remove chapatti when it is browned a little. Its OK if it has some darker spots. Each one will have its own design on it. Place each one on top of the other and keep them warm in a towel. I have a tortilla warmer that will keep them warm. you can eat these any way you like.

Banana Bread

Hi again, today I made Banana Bread. I didn't follow the instructions about turning down the oven if it was browning to quickly, so as you will see in the pic. with the recipe.

I got this recipe from a book that teaches you how to survive in the country. It has a lot of recipes for cooking things that you grow from your own garden. Also how to grow these varies veggies. One good thing about this recipe. the bread is still really moist, even if I did get it a little to brown.I hope you enjoy this recipe too.
