These were great! I too am not a lucky girl with a bread machine, so I mixed the yeast with the water first, then added it to the wet ingredients and added the dry ones to that, and kneaded it by hand (about 7 or 8 minutes). Instead of the vegetable oil, I used 1 tablespoon of applesauce and 1 of olive oil, to keep the fat down and nutrition up. I also used white whole-wheat flour, as I am trying to bake with more whole grains, and this gave the finished rounds a nice "earthy" flavor without too much "grainy" flavor. I tried the paper-thin rolling approach, but settled on a bit thicker piece, poked all over with a fork as I like a flatbread more than a pocket bread. They came out wonderfully soft and delicious, and have had rave reviews from friends...awesome recipe!
