On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.
When I was a teenager, I bought a set of shaped bread tubes after I attended a Pampered Chef party.
(Because, you know, that’s totally normal teenage behavior.)
I used them a little more when I had time to bake just for fun, but every now and again, I pull them out because they make bread that is perfect for little open-face sandwiches.
I still have not quite mastered the art of filling them evenly enough to prevent spillage, though. (It’s a little bit complicated, because the star mold can hold less dough than the other two shapes.)
Anyway, every time I make these, at least one of the loaves rises so much while it’s baking, the lid pops off and carries some dough with it. Which is actually ok, because there’s always someone around who wants to snack on the renegade bread.
I’m not sure if Pampered Chef sells these anymore (it looks like they’re discontinued), but Norpro makes a set that looks a lot like mine. And I see some Pampered Chef branded version are also available on Amazon.
