Hamburger Buns - Cookies

Our cooler weather and rain arrived sometime during the night. We got just under one inch. This is the first day in a long time that we have had the windows open all day. It is wonderful.

Thank goodness we went back outside yesterday afternoon and picked up all the debris from the various beds and trimmed a tree from the driveway where is brushed the truck top every time we pulled in. While DH unloaded all this, I finished the mowing. We wanted to beat the rain and we did. I still need to trim the rest of the front ditch but will do that tomorrow. I am getting closer to being caught up.

Need to remember to plant garlic!

We have been out of hamburger/sandwich buns for a long time so I took advantage of the cool morning to make some. This is an old recipe from a Fleischmann Margarine cookbook of the 1970's called Cheesy Onion Hamburger Buns.

One Bowl Cheesy Onion Burger Buns (From old Fleischmann's Yeast Cookbook

Makes 20 -2.1 oz buns (approximately)

5-3/4 to 6-3/4 cups unsifted flour
3 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
2 packages yeast (2-1/4 teaspoons)
2 tablespoons softened butter
2 cups very hot tap water
1-1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
¼ cups chopped onion (optional)

In a large bow thoroughly mix 2 cups flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add softened butter.

Gradually add very hot tap water to bowl with mixer on medium speed. Beat 2 minutes.
Add l cup flour or enough to make a thick batter. Beat at high speed for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl occasionally. Stir in cheese and onion and enough additional flour to make a soft dough. Knead on floured board 8-10 minutes (I use the mixer dough hook for 4 to 6 minutes)

Place in greased bowl , turning to grease top of dough, cover with damp cloth and let raise about l hour.

Punch dough down; turn out onto lightly floured board, divide dough into 20 equal pieces. Form each into smooth ball. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover (I don't) and let raise until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Bake in hot oven 400° for 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook on wire racks.

Note: Add 1 Tablespoons dough enhancer (optional).
Note: For soft tops, brush with melted butter

I also made the iced soft cookies again.

I am still reading a very good Dennis Lehane novel, The Given Day. It is quite different from the other books of his that we have read. I am enjoying it very much.

This is probably the last phlox bouquet of the year:
