LUSCIOUS BREAD DOUGH (FOR HOT POCKETS)
INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 20-30
  • 3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. lukewarm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast
DIRECTIONS
  1. 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)
  2. Set on dough cycle - check in the first five minutes - it should form a soft round ball.
  3. If its too sticky add a little more flour - too dry add a little more milk.
  4. When cycle is done, remove dough, punch down gently and divide into 4 pieces.
  5. Cover with a towel and let rest 10 minutes.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 375 for 20-30 mins.
  9. Remove to a wire rack.
