Why I Love This Recipe

This is a great, easy, non risihng yeast dough that produces something bewteen yeast dough and short pastry. It is well known to every working Russian woman. In theory, anyway.

1 pkg active dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
2/3 cup luke warm milk
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and cooled to luke warm
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/4 to 3 3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour


In a large bowl, combine the yeast, sugar and milk; allow to stand


faomy, about 5 minutes

Add teh butter,. salt and egg to the yeast mizture and mix well

with a wooden spoon.

C. Stir in 3/ 1/4 cups flour, 1 cup at a time, stirring well after

each addition.

Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead gently until have a

rather loose dough*, about 3 mintues, adding just enough of the

remaining flour to prevent sticking. Shape into a ball, cover with a linenen

or cotton (not terry cloth) towel and allow to stand for 10 mi nutes.

The dough is now ready to use. You can refrigerate it for up to 24
