      Great bread dough. Simple, easy to work with, not dry, not sticky. A+

      I followed the directions exactly, except it only took 4 to 4-1/4 cups flour to make a stiff dough. I made dough into rolls which rose well and baked up light and tasty - slightly sweet. This would make good loaf bread, cinnamon rolls or filled pastry. Thanks for a winning recipe, Rita!

      this dough is way too dry! 5 cups of flour, 1 cup of liquid and 2 eggs, maybe a 25% hydration. Bad recipe.
