Today Was A Good Day

My younger daughter is developing her interest in food and we had discussed getting together to cook something - sort of a cooking lesson/opportunity to make something new.

She chose to make lamejun, an Armenian flatbread with a highly seasoned meat topping. I've never made it but have wanted to as I really like it and it's expensive to buy at the Armenian markets.

Today was the day. We worked together to make the dough and the topping and took turns rolling out thin circles of dough and spreading the topping. Then into the oven to bake. We spent about five hours working together to bake and package about 4 dozen.

Two things stand out aside from the fact that I had a great time with my daughter. The topping was delicious and neither one of us can roll a piece of dough into any shape vaguely resembling a circle.

Here are some of the misshapen beauties waiting to got into the oven and one roughly round one after baking.

Looks great! What was the meat topping? And when you say "package", did you freeze it?

That dough looks like what I have been trying to make for pizza, Andy, very thin.
Tasty looking. I'll have to Google it.

Thanks, guys. I had a recipe from the top rated Armenian cookbook - hard to screw it up too much.

I just found an online recipe with lots of pics. If I can find the pomegranate molasses, I'm going to give this a go... downsized of course.

That looks great! I have that a few times in Armenian restaurants in central California (Fresno) but I can't seem to find any good Armenian restaurants in the south Bay area.

What was the cookbook?
