Ingredients

1
package regular or quick active dry yeast
1/4
cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
2
tablespoons sugar
3
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3
teaspoons baking powder
3/4
teaspoon salt
1/3
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4
cup shortening
1
cup buttermilk

  • 1 Dissolve yeast in warm water in small bowl. Stir in sugar; set aside.
  • 2 Mix flour, baking powder, salt and cheese in large bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture look like fine crumbs. Stir in yeast mixture and just enough buttermilk so dough leaves side of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 3 Place dough on lightly floured surface. Knead about 1 minute or until smooth. Cover and let rise in warm place 10 minutes.
  • 4 Heat oven to 375ºF. Grease outsides of six 10-ounce custard cups. Place cups upside down in ungreased jelly roll pan, 15 1/2x10 1/2x1 inch. Divide dough into 6 equal parts. Pat or roll each part into 7-inch circle. Shape dough circles over outsides of custard cups. (Do not allow to curl under edges of cups.)
  • 5 Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully lift bread bowls from custard cups--custard cups and bread will be hot. Cool bread bowls upright on wire rack.

Expert Tips

Planning a casual get-together with friends? Bake, then freeze these little bowls in an airtight freezer bag up to one month. Let them thaw a few hours before serving. If bowls get soggy, place them in a 350ºF oven for a few minutes or until crisp.

Not in the mood for chili? These versatile bowls are a great container for thick stews, creamed meat, vegetable mixtures or even savory salads.
