Made this bread today to give to my neighbors. I used my kitchenaid mixer using the dough hook for most of the mixing. To incorporate the butter, I used my food processor with some of the flour and once incorporated -- I moved it over to the mixer to blend with the other flour. I had hoped to half the recipe, but was not sure if I would get good results. This takes a bit of work, but is certainly worth the effort. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, June, 2013.
