I'll make this again! This has a good taste and fine texture. It's good with butter and honey. Next time I might cut the sugar in half.



I was really impressed with this bread. I made the dough balls small, just bigger than a golf ball. Next time, I'll try them bigger. They had a nice flavor, good texture. They were just as wonderful when they were cold, tasted even sweeter! I wasn't in the kitchen very long, I like that! Thank you for sharing this recipe. :)



This is a very good recipe. I made it for a potluck a couple of weeks ago and it went over great. I made a double recipe and there was none left. I was making it when my daughter got home from school, I had her try a piece and then had to keep her out of it. I had to promise to make it again for us. I made the mistake of rolling out the dough, it makes them kind of hard and chewwy. We liked ours best when it was soft and chew. Good recipe, you should try it.
