Hi, my name is Girl Friday, and I like to bake-a lot. Some times I bake a few times a day. Sometimes I use all purpose flour. Often I bake in the company of at least one of my 4 boys. I especially enjoy baking for other people. I am known to text neighbors to invite them down to my house to sample one of my hot-out-of-the-oven-experiments. The neighborhood boys pick up a snack as they pass through my kitchen.Baking makes me happy and calm.
Every Friday (in honor of being Girl Friday-and for another reason) I bake a special breakfast that our family calls, "Fabulous Friday". Here is what we are having this F.F. This recipe has been a F.F.for years. It tastes as buttery delicious the next day as it does the day you bake it. I like to add blueberries. I hope you enjoy! xo
P.S. Read the entire recipe before you begin. I made the mistake once of dumping all of the flour in not realizing it was added in layers: one for the crust the other for the crumb. That happened only once!
