[cooking] Pesto Star Bread

If given a choice, I will always choose savory over sweet. I did a cinnamon star bread as the King Arthur Flour bakealong recipe last November. The December challenge was the same recipe- but make a savory version. Yessss.

It's pretty. It's tasty. It's pretty tasty. And quite easy. Make the dough, divide it up, roll it out and start layering. I smeared each layer of mine with a little pesto and mozzarella cheese.

Cut, twist, pinch into a star:

Let it rise again. It puffs up and the tips of my stars came apart but that's okay:

Bake it and try not to eat it all at once. It was great as is but I wish I had had a little cup of marinara to dip the pieces in to. Next time, next time.
