-add the water, yeast, and sugar to the mixer bowl and allow to sit until it's foamy.
-mix in the butter, milk, salt, and 2-3 cups of flour. turn on the mixer.
-slowly add in the remaining flour until the dough pulls from the bowl.
-remove from the bowl and divide the ball of dough into two seaparte ones.
-rough the dough out and pull small peices out. dip each one into the butter mix.
-layer in a greased loaf pan. cover and allow to rise for about 45 minutes to an hour.

If you try it out, I hope it turns out as good as ours did. The pull-apart factor was a big hit with the littles...and myself as well.
