First, the video was most helpful to see the technique, thank you!

I made this recipe with 4 cups Whole What flour and 3 cups bread flour. I also substituted olive oil for butter to make a Vegan version for a company potluck.

They turned out GREAT!

So thank you thank you for the great recipe and demonstration.
