Peasant Bread

1-1/2 t yeast
1 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1 c very warm water
2 c flour

In 1 cup Pyrex measuring cup combine yeast, sugar, & salt. Add water. Mix. Combine mixture w/ flour in medium size bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon just until combined then put towel over the top of the bowl and let it rise for 1 hour. Scrape dough out of bowl and put on a greased (I simply spray it with Pam) cookie sheet or pie dish. Let rise 1 more hour. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes. Turn down heat to 350° and bake for 20 more minutes. Brush top with butter as soon as it comes out of the oven and sprinkle salt lightly over the top (I use a course sea salt but any salt will work). This recipe can easily be doubled.
