I’ve been thinking about flat bread lately because I’ve been thinking about hummus lately. It seems like such a simple task, but so far it has not been. But my search for flat bread lead me into a cookbook from which I have never cooked that has been perched happily on my shelf for ages.
The cheese spread is a similar treat to one my mother-in-law used to make. With the spiced pecans and dried cherries, it becomes something special.
Here goes. If you want this to be a throw down, last minute, yet very nice looking appetizer for a buffet or a group of friends, but some flat breads at the grocery store. If, like me, you are obsessed with how many shapes and forms flour, water and yeast can take, make it yourself. This bread is reminiscent of a salted, herbed plain pizza dough bread…just so you know what you are getting into here.
