Pita Pockets (Flat Bread)

Family Favorites

When I was growing up, the mom of a friend of mine would have these Lebanese pocket breads waiting for us after school. Warm out of the oven and filled with jam and butter, the kids would line up at the door!

Although you can easily buy them at the store today, fresh from the oven always wins!

Use as you would pita pockets for savory or sweet uses.
