Shio Pan – Japanese Salt Bread #BBB

For November, Karen has shared with us a nifty little butter crescent she found at a Japanese bakery.  They’re known as Shio Pan or Japanese Salt Bread.  These flavorful beauties are stuffed within the center with a protracted piece of butter that melts out across the baking bread, and browns up and crisps the underside of the roll. That brown butter provides much more taste.  (Be warned, it is best to use a baking sheet with a rim to keep away from butter oil spilling within the oven and creating smoke.)

These are a beautiful, small batch recipe which my hubby devoured whereas making pleased noises after which made the easy declaration, “Oh, sure.”  He ate his piece warmed, with a bit selfmade jam and it was pleasant.  Our host kitchen tried some with the salt sprinkle, some with an every thing bagel sprinkle, and had the great suggestion of probably including some taste to the butter stick that bakes contained in the crescents.
