I'm giving this recipe four stars b/c I want others to try it. I didn't have much luck when it came to rising but it had an amazing flavor. I'm not sure if it was the fact that I did half white...
I added almond extract to the cream cheese mixture, and made a glaze using cream, powdered sugar & almond extract ... YUM!
So good. One thing, add the melted butter to your ingredients last as it will coat the yeast and slow the rising process.
