I cut my boules in quarters or halves and spread among my friends.  Or, I have them over for a slice with jam.

How did you get that crust color?   It is really beautiful.  -Varda

I sprayed them with butter flavored Pam spray just as they came out of the oven. Didn't use any wash at all. This also softens the crust, so if you're looking for a really crispy crust, this won't work!
