Stuffed Baguettes

Happy Valentine's Day from Foodette Reviews! Now, most of the treats that you'll see are for the menfolk trying to woo ladies, but ladies, how about vice versa? Here's a treat adapted from the King Arthur recipe for stuffed baguettes that's sure to make any man go ga-ga for you on Valentine's Day!
Our tasty toppings? Prosciutto, pesto, fresh mozzarella, and ricotta, with garlic butter brushed on top. How's that for an aphrodisiac?

Ingredients (serves 4, at least!)
Starter
1/2 cup (4 ounces) cool water
1 cup (4 1/4 ounces) All-Purpose Flour or Unbleached Bread Flour
1/16 teaspoon instant yeast

Dough
All of the starter
1 teaspoon instant yeast or 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 cup (8 ounces) lukewarm water*
3 1/2 cups (14 3/4 ounces) Unbleached All-Purpose Flour or Unbleached Bread Flour*
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1. Mix starter ingredients together, let sit in a covered bowl for 8 hours to overnight.
2. Once that's done, mix that with the rest of the ingredients, and let that sit for 4-8 hours.
3. Roll out the dough and shape into three little ovals. Spread with a little oil and cover with a wet paper towel, let sit for fifteen minutes. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
4. Once done, roll the ovals out into flat rounds, like pizza dough flats. Spread with toppings
and roll up. Pinch at the seams and brush with egg or garlic butter. Bake for 25 minutes, cool and eat! Propose to your significant other and HAVE A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Love,

The Foodette
