This is a delicious Italian flavored bread. Leave out the rosemary and the dough is still delicious. I first made this when I was nine. It's a great recipe for beginners!

I made this as written. We liked the rosemary flavor and the texture was a little different but still good. I really liked how easy this was to make and how nice it looked after baking. Thanks for sharing.
