"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong." ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder
Place yeast, sugar and water in large bowl and allow mixture to become bubbly. Mix in butter, salt, and 2 cups of flour. Add half of the rosemary. Knead for about 10 minutes until smooth and elastic, adding more flour as needed. Oil a bowl, put dough in and cover to coat. Cover with a towel and let dough rise in a warm place for one hour until doubled. Punch down dough and divide in half. Let dough rest about 5 minutes. Grease cookie sheet. Shape dough into 2 small rounded oval loaves. Sprinkle remaining rosemary over the loaves and press lightly into the surface. Let loaves rise again until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until lightly browned. Serve with seasoned olive oil to dip bread in and enjoy!
My family ate every bite of this bread tonight - both loaves! It was definitely a hit. ;-)
