Happy unbirthday to us all ! (in italiano a seguire)



Few days ago Lori of Luscious food had a very nice idea : a big party for all the November babies crowded with cakes made also by cooks born in other months. I was born in February but my husband and brother were born in November, I love baking so here we go with a Rustic Bouquet to celebrate ! Happy Birthday !!!




Rustic bouquet

500 gr flour
100 gr sugar
80 gr peeled almonds chopped
140 gr butter, softened
1 envelope instant yeast
1 large egg
150 gr jam
1 lemon
milk
salt

Mix together 450 gr of flour with the yeast, sugar, salt, grated lemon rind , 100 gr butter, 1 egg and 6 Tbs scalded milk. Knead for a while until you get an elastic and soft dough. Let it raise for about an hour until doubled in size.
Turn on the oven at 400°.
Divide the dough in 50 gr pieces and roll them in thin rectangles then spread them with jam and almonds. Roll them and put them standing in a prepared round baking pan (10 inches).
Cover with a loose foil and bake for 30 minutes, uncover and keep cooking for 30 more minutes.

Ho voluto partecipare all'iniziativa di Lori per festeggiare i nati in Novembre con una ricetta di un dolce semplice come quello che piacerebbe ad Andrea ( del 27 nov).

500 gr farina
100 gr zucchero
80 gr mandorle tritate
140 gr burro a temperatura ambiente
1 bustina di lievito di birra
1 uovo grande
150 gr confettura
scorza di un limone
latte
sale

Unire 450 gr di farina con il lievito lo zucchero il sale la scorza, 100 gr di burro 1 uovo e 6 cucchiai di latte tiepido.Impastare fino ad ottenere una pasta soffice ed elastica.Far lievitare circa un ora fino al raddoppio.
Accendere il forno a 200°.
Dividere la pasta in pezzi da 50 gr e stenderli in sottili rettangoli, cospargerli di marmellata e mandorle, arrotolarli e metterli in piedi in una teglia rotonda imburrata.
Coprire con un foglio di alluminio e cuocere per 30 min, levarlo e far cuocere altri 30 min.
