      I made this today for Easter dinner tomorrow. It was my first time making bread of any kind. It turned out great! I made three nice-sized round loaves and two dozen "muffins/rolls." I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it was my first time and the dough was very sticky. I probably could have added more flour, but I ran out. I also topped it with a powdered sugar icing. Overall great recipe. I'll use it again.
