The last issue of Country Side Magazine had some good recipes in it. (It always does.) I love this magazine and devour it when it gets here. The butter pie crust recipe on page 48 turns out delicious. I had promised my husband a pie and I was out of coconut oil, so I had to use butter. This was the best butter crust recipe that I've tried.
Also, I tried the Oatmeal Bread recipe on the same page. My kids said"This is like store-bought.." Now I know that's not what I strive for in homemade bread, but it gets them to eat it-hey? I tweeked the recipe a bit. I've used it twice already and made caramel rolls out of it yesterday.
1 c boiling water
1 c oats, ground fine in blender or mill
1 pack yeast
1/3 c warm water
1/2 c warm water
1/4 c raw honey-I like sweet bread
1 T coconut oil
1 t sea salt
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 c unbleached flour
Combine oatmeal and boiling water. Let stand until lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in 1/3 c warm water. Add to oatmeal and add honey, coconut oil, salt and 1/2 c warm water. Mix in 2 c whole wheat flour. Add unbleached flour. Knead for 10 minutes. Let rise covered for 1 hour. Place in greased bread pan. Let rise covered for 45 minutes. Bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. (I add the extra 1/2 cup warm water because I found the dough to be too dry otherwise. You might not need to do this.)
This is great for sandwiches. Even with the whole wheat flour in it. And my children loved the caramel rolls.
