These little beauties were inspired by these gems. Since I don't have a mixer, (I know, it makes me sad too). I have to make my bread with my bread machine. I think I love it. I used this sweet bread recipes for bread machines.
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
Then I made the rest following the original recipe. Oh my. So yummy.
