It is a great way to remember old memories, like the pie you grandma always made or to make new ones like the first time your daughter made the same pie. You will remember them for the rest of your days.
It teaches us to savor the moment
Baking requires a lot of different ingredients, but the most important of them all is patience. You can’t rush anything from the rising of the dough to the browning of the butterhorn in the oven. It teaches us the value of slowing things down and savoring every moment of effort when it comes out as a delicious buttery bread.
Baking at home is always better than outside food.
Baking food at home is without a doubt much healthier than bringing in outside food. You can test and modify recipes according to your need at home, but you can’t change the preservative and god-knows-what used in the food you buy from somewhere else. So saddles up and try this out this holiday season with your friends and family. Here is how you can make them delicious butterhorn that they will always remember for the rest of their lives. And with delicious yeast for baking recipes.
Fresh cake yeast: 1
White Sugar: 2 Teaspoons, ½ Cup
Milk: 2 Cups
Butter: 1 Cup
Softened Butter: ½ Cup
Bread Flour: 5 ½ Cups
Salt: 1 teaspoon
Take a bowl, add the compressed yeast and sugar into it and leave it alone.
Heat some milk in a saucepan till it forms a skin and then remove it from heat. Set it aside to cool.
Take a large bowl separately. Add butter and the ½ cup of sugar in it. Pour the warmed milk into it till it makes the butter melt and then let the mixture cool down to the room temperature.
Beat the eggs in the mixture nicely, one at a time, and then add yeast into it.
Now keep adding the flour gradually until it is well blended.
When the mixture turn into a sticky dough, cover it up and leave it in a warm place for about an hour so that it can rise to double its size.
Punch it down and leave it to refrigerate overnight.
Divide the dough into four pieces.
Roll them into 12-inch circle and then cut it into 8 pieces like a pizza.
Place it on a slightly greased sheet and make it roll by bending the edges to make them into crescent shape.
Cover them up and leave them to rise.
Bake for 15 minutes in an oven preheated to 190 degree C until they are golden.

You may not get it like a professional chef the first time but you will surely get there once you start with the little simple things.
