These are definitely amazing! I would like to add that creaming the butter and sugar first BEFORE adding the starter is a good step to point out. I added all three and tried to cream together and ended up with lumpy and mealy butter pieces. Even though I knew I probably should have creamed just the butter and sugar together first, I was following the recipe exactly as written and it was a little messy. The taste is for sure incredible! I substituted almonds for the walnuts, and did half almond extract and half vanilla for a more almondy flavor! I also doubled the recipe so I could freeze some for whenever I don’t feel like baking that week.
That’s a great tip, Stephanie! Thanks for sharing. And those substitutions sound delicious!

These look amazingly good! I’m going to make them for my dear friends Sarah and Diane this year. Thanks!

Can you use metal beaters when making the bread. I know you are not supposed to in the starter, just wondering
Elizabeth T. says
Glenda, I agree. But I found if you click in front of “Ingredients” and copy up until the last step of the recipe and past into a Word document and print, you can bypass printing all the extra stuff.
