Pull Apart Soda Bread
Instead of baking one big loaf of Irish soda bread this St. Patrick's Day, make a version that yields individual servings.

Start with our basic soda-bread recipe. After turning out the dough on a lightly floured surface, divide it into 16 equal pieces and, with floured hands, roll each into a ball. Transfer the balls to a parchment-lined baking sheet in 4 rows of 4, making sure each dough ball is touching the ones around it. With the tip of a paring knife, cut a 1/4-inch-deep X on each ball. Because the pull-apart rolls are smaller than a full loaf, the baking time is cut in half. Cool to room temperature before serving with plenty of salted Irish butter.
