Made these on Sunday. Sooooo good. Hope you'll try them!
Blueberry Buns (Open Window Bakery)
Dough: 1 pcg. Active dry yeast; c warm water; 3 c flour; 1/3 c sugar; 1 tsp. salt; 3 Tbsp.Crisco; 2 eggs; tsp. vanilla.
Filling: 2 c fresh or thawed frozen blueberries (I used more…not sure how much); c sugar; scant 1 Tbsp. Cornstarch dissolved in c water; tsp. salt. One egg beaten with 1 tsp. water for egg wash; sugar for sprinkling.
In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water. Let stand until mixture begins to bubble, about 5 min. Sift tog. Flour, sugar and salt. Place in the bowl of an electric mixer (I used the Cuisinart with the dough hook). Add shortening, yeast and water, eggs and vanilla and beat until dough is smooth. (I had to put in a wee bit extra water) Let stand while preparing filling.(I covered it with a towel)
Mix filling ingred. In a med. saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer uncovered for 5 min. stirring occasionally, until mix. Thickens. Remove from heat and let cool.
On a well floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8" thickness….(I made the dough quite thin). Cut dough into 5" sq. pieces..(I made them smaller). Place 1 Tbsp. Filling in centre of square, then fold dough over on top and pinch to close, pinch ends closed. Cover buns with a towel and let stand 30 min. Brush buns with egg wash and sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake until browned.
(about 15 min.)

Mama your bread looks wonderful!
Kathe, you can do it! Let us know how it turns out!

My bananas are finally ripe enough that I can finish the last of my cupcakes for the wedding and make muffins for our border (the monkey bites I posted awhile back, he loves them!). I may also get some cookies done for while I am laid up...Need to get some baking done ahead as I will not be on my feet for at least 8 weeks.

as always, that NYT bread with minimal ingreds was wonderful.
I still marvel at how easy it is to make, although I do 1 t yeast and more water than called for, plus more salt, I don't like bland anything

I am convinced that olive oil does do marvelous things for the making of bread. I don't use those cakes of yeast, I only have the rapid rise in the jars version, is there a difference?
