They are priced at $2.19, so they end up being 1.09 (and a half) each.

Moomie's buns

I had already planned to have hamburgers for dinner tonight, but didn't have any buns. I figured it was as good of a time as any to finally make Moomie's Buns which have been raved about on the Cooking Light message boards, as well as around the internet.

They are delicious! I had to sample them, of course.

Here is the recipe for you

Moomie's Buns
1 cup water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 egg
3 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast

Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select dough. Allow to run cycle.

Dump out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 8 pieces. With each piece, slap into a bun shape. Usually four or five slaps will do it. Place on greased cookie sheets or your bun pans, cover; rise about 30 to 40 minutes.

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes till golden. Cool on wire racks.

Notes: I cut the sugar down to 2 Tablespoons.
