Christmas Creatures

The pastry is actually for a more traditional French brioche-like bread. But around Christmas, the pastry takes the form of the small men/women we had at the bake off.

  • 500 g flour
    • make a well
  • 15 g of yeast
  • 3 dl of milk
  • a pince of sugar 
    • mix these three ingredients separately
    • add them to the flour
  • 60 g melted butter
  • 8 g salt
    • add to the four
    • mix and knead (between 15 and 30 min., the more the better)
    • while kneading add raisins or as variation chocolate chips (or both).
Rest the dough for 30 min. Then form the pastry to the shape you like. Rest the bread again for about 1 hour. Brush the top of it with beaten egg. Cook for 25-30 min. at 180°.
