Icebox Experiment: Mango, Cream Cheese and Basil Brioche Pockets
Recently, I had left over brioche dough. The picture above is the predecessor to the Mango, Cream Cheese and Basil Brioche Pockets. Those were so good, we ate them straight out the oven.
But, here is how it went. Susan from Wild Yeast posted a lovely peach brioche tart in honor of Bri from Figs with Bri. I employed Susan's brioche recipe to make some rolls. With the leftover brioche dough, I turned to my pantry. Quickly, I knew that I wanted to sweet pocket; a sort of tea party food. The flow of mango has slowed slightly, but we still seem to have more. I tossed into my pocket some cream cheese with basil and topped it with mango. Then I set the brioche to have one last rise.
In that last rise, the miracle of the yeast seemed to happen in unheard proportions. Either it was a really warm day or we actually make bread correctly. But, the resulting pocket looked slightly unseemly in its overachiever's volume.
