Easy French Bread

We love french bread...especially hot french bread.  My kids ask to buy this in the store and prefer it over candy.  I always thought that it was hard to make and took lots of time....not true.  This is a quick recipe, great for last minute dinners. It is soooo easy and soooo yummy!
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 Tbsp. dry yeast
2 tsp. sugar
3 1/4 cup flour 
2 tsp salt

In a small bowl mix warm water with yeast and sugar. Let sit about 5 min until foam forms on top.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour and salt. Gradually add yeast mixture. Mix until the dough becomes a small ball and knead for 5 min. (I use my bosh with the dough hook)

Cut dough in half and shape into two baguettes. Place on a cookie sheet. Cover and let raise for 30 min.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. With a sharp knife make a slash down the length of each baguette (this gives it "the look") Pour water into a cookie sheet and place it on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake bread for 15 min. About half way through brush the top of the bread with melted butter.
