31 Days of Bread in July: Russian/Georgian Chrysanthemum Bread

I looked at a website today with breads from all over the world, and it sparked my interest.  It gave me the motivation I needed to make it though the next seven days of making bread.  I looked at some bread called Karavai which looked amazing.  I didn't know there was such art in bread making!  But, because of time, I decided to go with a simpler one that was fun to make.  It is a Russian/Georgian Chrysanthemum Bread.  You make it out of dough that is cut into circles and then brushed with a spread and folded in half, etc.  I didn't have any garlic spread, so I made my own version with butter, cottage cheese, a garlic scape, a very small onion from the garden, Italian cheeses, red pepper flakes and a bit of garlic salt.  I put them all into the food processor and mixed them.  It turned out well.  Too bad I didn't write it down!

I really enjoyed doing something totally different and new.  It also tasted great!!!!
