      Ok so I have made this bread three times in three days - each way just slightly different based on some of the other reviews.
      1 - exactly as the instructions say using regular unbleached flour (I buy it from Costco): It was the best bread I've ever made. Instantly became my "go-to" bread recipe. Used the 1.5 size and a medium crust color and it was delish!
      2 - again using regular all-purpose unbleached flour, I replaced the shortening with butter - no change in taste that I could discern, but the crust was softer and less crusty.
      3 - My personal favorite - I returned to using the shortening instead of butter but I used bread flour (Kroger brand) instead and the taste and texture were significantly improved in my honest opinion - THIS version is now my "go-to" bread recipe - absolutely the best homemade bread I've ever made or had. My daughter cannot get enough of it - she asks for it constantly!
      Oh, and in 2 & 3 I did reduce the cook time to the light setting for the crust. My daughter doesn't like her crust "too brown".
      I am so glad I found this recipe! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

      Best bread I've ever made!! I substituted bread flour for ap flour and it turned out great!! It holds up to thin slicing for sandwiches and toast!! Awesome, awesome recipe!! I only used the bread machine for the dough cycle, hate that hole the paddle makes at the bottom of the loaf!!

      Makes a chewy, crusty loaf with nice flavor. I subbed coconut oil for the shortening and would do so again. Thank you for sharing!
