FROM THE KITCHEN OF: Gary & Margie Hartford [Eugene OR]

Makes 6 flat loaves

Step 1

Combine 1 cup flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Heat milk to hot (125 to 130 degrees) in saucepan, then stir into flour. Add enough flour to make moderately stiff dough, two and a half to three cups. Knead 10 minutes. Let rise, covered in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 2 hours.

On 3 lightly greased baking sheets, flatten balls with hands into round pizza shapes 7 or 8 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick in center, with 1 inch wide raised edges about 1 inch thick. Using ice pick or head of brad, cover flat center of bread with decorative holes in concentric circles. Cover loaves in cloth and let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Brush loaves with beaten egg. Bake at 400 degrees until browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Step 4

Each loaf contains (approx): 311 calories, 436 mg sodium, 40 mg cholesterol, 3 gram fat, 59 grams carbohydrates, 11 grams protein, 0.18 gram fiber.
