Some nights I don't sleep well and last night was one of them. I woke early, and decided to not feel desperate about all the sleep I didn't get. Fighting my tiredness I went into the kitchen and decided I could give the rest of my family the cosy feeling of smell of fresh baked bread when they woke.
Favorite Sunday pastries in our family are these ones we call "horn", a traditional name they have got because they are shaped like the horns of a he-goat. They are easy to make and delicios when eaten still warm from the oven. And also perfect for the freezer waiting there for next Sunday morning's breakfast.
16dl white flour
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons sugar
6 dl milk or water
100gr fresh yeast
Melt the butter and mix with the milk/water to a fingerwarm mixture. Add the yeast and whipe till the yeast has melted. Mix it with the flour, salt and sugar. Knead to a smooth dough. Let the dough rest in a temperate place for half an hour.
Cut the dought into four pieces and roll out to a circle like shown in the photo. Cut each circle in 6 and roll/form the pieces to horns. Let the horn pastries rise while you heat the oven to 220Celsius. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
We drink tea for breakfast, coffee is for later in the day. I have a special corner in my kitchen where I keep my tea and coffee supplies. Yesterday the tea collection was extended with some special tea bags from Equador sent me by Risa which hosted an online teaparty some time ago.
