· She used her hand to butter the pan.
· Once shaped, can rise overnight in the refrgerator in the pan, covered with a cloth.
· Takes about 20 minutes to 1 hour to rise in kitchen (I found it took much longer)
· When frozen, place in oven while cold and bake for 25? Minutes at 375F?
· When putting loaf in pan, butter pan with hands and then rub formed dough with butter from hands and then cover with cloth.
· Once formed, freeze in pan.
· Egg glaze: 1 egg missed with ½ C heavy Cream. Top rolls with egg glaze and sprinkle with herbs. If glaze is used, then bread rolls do not need to be covered with cloth. Rise for 20 minutes (much longer) until double.
· Use 1 inch width and 10 inch length dough and tie into knots and freeze on baking sheets and use glaze with poppy seeds (left off). (This worked great!)
· Make bread sticks by twisting and place on pan – glaze and sprinkle with sesame seeds and let rise 20 minutes until double (rise takes longer and I didn’t find benefit of glaze).

I’m still looking a for nut butter that doesn’t that hasn’t been exposed to peanuts. I don’t like to buy anything online and I haven’t found anything local yet. I’ll keep looking. Substituted oil for the butter and they looked good, I can’t try them because I’m the one with the peanut allergy. My kids ate them but they preferred them with butter.

½ C Butter (or ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons canola oil)
½ C Peanut Butter
1 ¼ C All-Purpose Flour
½ C Sugar
½ C Packed Brown Sugar or ¼ C Honey
1 Egg
½ t Baking Soda
¼ t Cream of Tartar*
1/8 t Baking Soda*
½ t Vanilla

* Substitute for ½ t Baking Powder

In a mixing bowl beat margarine and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add ½ cup of the flour, the sugars, egg, baking soda, baking powder, and vanilla. Beat till till thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. If necessary, cover and chill dough till easy to handle.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. If desired, roll in additional sugar. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten by crisscrossing with the tines of a fork.

Bake in a 375F oven for 7 to 9 minutes or till bottoms are lightly browned. Let rest on cookie sheet until cool and then move to wire rack. If you move them too soon after baking, the cookies will fall apart. Makes about 36.

Purple Ice Cream Scoop: Bake for 14 minutes.

I can’t remember where I found this information but it works pretty well.

Butter/margarine = olive oil

1 teaspoon = ¾ teaspoon
1 tablespoon = 2 ¼ teaspoon
2 tablespoons = 1 ½ tablespoons
¼ cup = 3 tablespoons
1/3 cup = ¼ cup
½ cup = ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons
2/3 cup = ½ cup
¾ cup = ½ cup + 1 tablespoon
1 cup = ¾ cup

Feb/08 – I substituted olive oil for butter using the measurements in the chart above for cooking and they worked perfectly.
