Pita bread

Success ... in this case measured by the puffiness of pita bread! :)
I saw the new video that Chef John posted on "How to make pita bread at home" and had to try it out right away! I have so far tried Chef John's recipes for ciabatta and for pizza dough, and they both worked perfectly. This one was no exception. Please follow the instructions from his video and/or his blog

This dessert is truly royal, as the name says. It brings back warmth and memories of Christmas markets in Vienna and Budapest.  
So delicious and easy to make. I know that I say 'it is easy to make' for most of my recipes, but it really is!
