|Dill Weed (I use Caraway seed)|
|3 cups||Flour (up to 3-1/2)|
|1 pack||Active dry yeast|
|1 cup||Very warm water (120-130F)|
|⅓ cup||Butter; melted|
Using solid shortening, grease bunt pan, (non-stick pan, too). Sprinkle with ½ dill weed. (Lightly spoon flour into measuring cups, level off.) In large bow, blend 1½ cups flour and next 6 ingredients. Beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, stir in remaining 1 ⅔ to 2 cups flour. On floured surface, knead until smooth, about one minute. Press or roll out to 15 x 12 inch rectangle. Using pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut dough into diamond-shaped pieces by cutting into 1 ½ to 2 inch strips diagonally across dough. In shallow pan, melt butter. Dip each piece into the butter and layer in prepared pan, overlapping pieces. Sprinkle each layer with dill weed. Cover; let rise in warm place till light and doubled in size, 45 to 60 minutes. Preheat oven to 400F. Bake 20 to 25 minutes till deep golden brown. Cool upright in pan 2 minutes, turn onto serving plate. Serve warm.
Makes one 10 pull-apart loaf.
