LUSCIOUS BREAD DOUGH (FOR HOT POCKETS)
3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. lukewarm milk
1 tbsp. butter, melted
3 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
Place ingredients in bread machine as instructed by your manufacturer. (mine are wet ingredients on bottom with dry on top-yeast being the last one added)
Set on dough cycle - check in the first five minutes - it should form a soft round ball.
If its too sticky add a little more flour - too dry add a little more milk.
When cycle is done, remove dough, punch down gently and divide into 4 pieces.
Cover with a towel and let rest 10 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface, roll each dough piece into a thin 8 inch circle or oval - add fillings in the middle of each but be sure to leave some room along the edges.
Fold the dough over like a turnover and crimp with a fork like pie crust. (I made mine like turnovers - you can make them burrito style too as was stipulated in the recipe with the seam side down and the ends folded under.
Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375 for 20-30 mins.
Remove to a wire rack.
