I just pulled my first batch out of the oven! YUMM-O! There were a couple of things I wish I'd have paid more attention to. First, my dough didn't double...not even close. I'm sure I either have old yeast or I killed it with water that was too hot...but I went ahead and used it anyway. Second, while I *meant* to cut the dough into 12, I blanked for a bit and cut it into 8 instead. No biggie. The baking soda/water worked great. Into the oven. I baked at 400 for 10 minutes and I'm glad I did! The bottoms are over-brown and the tops got brown really really fast. I wish I could have left them in the oven another minute or two, but the bottoms would have been black! The flavor, however, is SO GOOD! Really dense (that's why I wish I could have baked them longer). Next time, I may lower the oven temperature even further, and bake them on parchment. I'm pretty sure that soda/water reacts with the metal and that doesn't help the bottoms one bit! BUT I'd make these again in a heartbeat! The flavor is great, they look great, and they're such a great snack! Thanks for the recipe!!
