    Wow. you do a good job!
    I am getting a care package together for the boy and I am going to make bar cookies because they will pack/ship well. Any other ideas?

    Seeded Hamburger Buns

    3/4 to 1 Cup warm water (use 3/4 if it's humid, 1 C if air is dry)
    2 Tab softened butter
    2 eggs (separate 1 of the eggs, the yolk goes in the dough and the white is used for the topping)
    3 1/2 Cups AP flour
    1/4 Cup sugar
    1 1/4 tsp salt
    1 Tab yeast
    Sesame or other type of seed

    1. Mix all ingredients together and knead 7-10 minutes to make a soft, smooth, slightly sticky dough
    2. Lightly grease bowl, put the dough in and cover.
    3. Let rise until doubled (approx. 1-2 hours)
    4. Divide into 8 pieces. Shape into balls, place on parchment paper covered baking sheet. Gently flatten the balls with the palm of your hand to about 3" across.
    5. Cover and let rise about 1 hour, until noticeably puffy
    6. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees while the buns are rising
    7. Mix egg white with 2 Tab water. Brush bun tops with mixture and sprinkle with seeds.
    8. Bake 15-18 minutes

    You can make these bigger or smaller if you want. I weighed the dough, then divided total weight by 8 to get them all the same size, it makes a nice burger size. Slidders might be fun too.
