~ Tomorrow is the first of December...'Christmas' has come early this year ~
What will you have on your fireplace mantel :o)
Place the sourdough started in your cherry red mixing bowl.
You have already heated the butter,water and milk to lukewarm,so add that to the starter.
Stir within the sugar,salt,and dry yeast.
Leaving one half cup of flour for kneading later...gradually place the designated other into the mix to make a soft dough.
Turn out onto a flour dusted surface and knead until smooth and elastic...adding the reserved flour if necessary.
In another cherry red mixing bowl...that you got last Christmas...butter the bottom and sides,placing the soft dough and turning to surround.
Cover with Saran Wrap...Hum? I can think of other uses for Saran Wrap,but we won't go into that at this time...Saving that for your Christmas present :o)
Place in refrigerator overnight.
Next morning...Christmas Morning!
Turn this out onto a lightly floured surface...divide into twelve pieces ( Well,there is the Twelve Days of Christmas you know :o)
Gently roll each piece to make a twelve inch strand,if cumbersome then shape on a greased baking sheet by holding one end of strand in place and wind around loosely to form a coil,tuck end firmly underneath.
Place two inches apart,cover with a nice soft,cozy,cloth and let rest in a warm place free from drafts,and let rise about one hour,or,until doubled in size.
Make indentations about one inch wide in center of each coil,pressing to bottom.
Fill with cherry pie filling that has been splashed with Rebel Reserve Cherry Liqueur.
Your little red oven has been pre-heated at 400 degrees...now bake these little cherry delights for ten to fifteen minutes,or until done.
Remove from baking sheets and cool.
When cool...Drizzle with the mixture of confectionery sugar,cherry extract,and Rebel Reserve Cherry Liqueur.
~ Set back and admire the misty moonlight,by the flickering fire light! ~
