    These are surprisingly good! used regular yeast first and couldn't get back to it in a timely manner. I fried that up, and it was still good, but not what I thought it should be. Made a new batch of dough today using 1 teaspoon of instant yeast and did everything correctly, and ... WOW! My dough rounds puffed up like pitas which was really good for us. I cut them and filled them and my husband can't stop raving about them. He is the one who shared the recipe with me. 10 stars on this one.
