French Peasant Bread

This is the best dang bread ever and it is super easy!  This bread has a really crusty crust and is raved about by all who eat it, thanks to my friend ashlee for the recipe. Yum both loaves will be eaten by the end of the day! 

1 pkg. yeast
2 c. warm water
1 TBL. sugar
2 tsp. salt
4 c. flour

Dissolve yeast, sugar and salt in warm water.  Add flour and stir until combined.  Let sit and double in size about an hour.  The dough at this point will be super sticky but resist the urge to add more flour, use some flour or butter on hands to be able to split the dough into 2 halves, try to shape into domes and place on greased pan with cornmeal.  Brush with melted butter Bake on 425 for 10 min. Then reduce temp to 375 for 15 min.  Brush with butter a second time just out of the oven.
