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.

  2. Cover and let rise 45 minutes.
  3. Divide dough into 8-10 balls. Roll balls into 5-6" rounds.
  4. *** Really Important*** Roll from center to edge, not back and forth or they won't puff. Let rise 30 minutes.
