“This recipe actually comes from a bread machine recipe book. I changed a couple things so I could make it by hand. I do not own a bread machine. I do however use my bosche mixer. My kids devour these so they don't stick around long. They do freeze well when I double or triple the batch. Timing is approximate.”
