Tea Ring

Hello! Today I am excited to be sharing a very special treat in this house. The Tea Ring! Its not a really sugary and sweet treat, more something to go with hot chocolate or tea (It pretty much says it in the title!). 
Today we made a few different flavors:
Caramel and Swiss Miss
Lemon Curd
Lemon Curd and Honey

Another favorite is to put jelly inside, so good!

Tea Ring

Makes 2 Tea Rings

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package instant rise yeast
1 egg, well beaten
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2-2 tablespoon melted butter
brown sugar

1. Measure milk, water, butter, sugar, and salt into saucepan and heat to scalding.

2. Measure 1 1/8 cups flour into large mixing bowl; add yeast. Blend.

3. Pour milk and melted butter  mixture into flour and yeast. Add egg. Beat about thirty seconds at low speed. Beat three more minutes at high speed or by hand. Add remaining flour a little at a time until soft dough forms. Knead. 
Cover and let rest 20 minutes.

4. Break dough into two parts. Shape each part into rectangle with rolling pin. Spread with melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll into Tea Ring Shape. Bake at 375 for about 10-15 minutes.

Note: This recipe doubles well to make four tea rings.
