Mine turned out beautifully and while I followed the recipe I just wanted to add what I did differently. It's crazy how varying the results have been!
I mixed the butter, water, sugar and yeast like the directions say, but I let the yeast sit for 5 minutes until bubbly. I added the flour and mixed with the dough hook on my kitchenaid, then added the remaining 3 cups of flour for a total of 6. I continued beating it until it changed from batter to kind of stretchy but it was VERY wet. I transferred it to an oiled bowl and let it rise 30 minutes, punched it down (oil your hands, it's WAY wet) and let it rise another 30 minutes. I punched it again and pinched out golf ball size hunks of dough and put them in a well greased cupcake pan and baked as directed. I never kneaded it or added more flour, and they're gorgeous! Good luck if you try this recipe, I gave it a 4 because if you have no idea how to make bread I could see where this could go horribly wrong!
