What am I going to do with these?

I was trying out a recipe from one of our TFL members but it didn't turn out.  To make a long story short, the intended sweet sandwich loaf didn't rise so I made the dough into flatbread.  After all the work, I realized the dough was sweet so they didn't taste like regular pita breads.  I am making curry chicken to eat with some of these for dinner tonight.  But I am not sure what else I can do with them... and there are 16 rounds; cut in halves and I got 32 all in all.  I consider giving some of them away, but what do I tell people how to eat them?  I've never eaten sweet pita before.  Any suggestions?

Eat 'em like crepes with jam or honey or Nutella maybe?

Both very good ideas.  We have just had some with the chicken curry I made for dinner.  To my surprise, my 7-year-old LOVED it!  He just dipped the bread into the curry sauce, ate up the whole thing then asked for a second half.  I decided to tear up one into three pieces and spread jam, peanut butter, and margarine on each piece.  They all tasted pretty good.  I particularly like the one with peanut butter.  But of course, I like everything with peanut butter.  :-)

Strawberries and cream?  Any berries and cream.  Bananas and peanut butter as a breakfast or snack. Melt chocolate chips on one slightly, add marshmallows - a variation on s'mores.

You could cut them into wedges, spray/brush them with a little oil and then sprinkle some cinnamon and sugar onto them. Stick them in a 400 degree oven for about 5-7 minutes. Be careful as they have a tendency to burn if you let them go too long.


I imagine that you might need to do a bit of tinkering to get the flavor right with an already sweet pita, but it seems like that shouldn't be an issue. Good luck.

I can't believe people are crazy about these sweet pita.  As of this afternoon I have only five left.  Wow.  I should make them more often.  :-)
