Pumpkin Spice Brioche

Posted by Lindsey On 9:27 AM

I think I am addicted to making bread. Ever since I succeeded at making this at home a few weeks ago, I have been on a bread rampage. This recipe is a process and took a long time, but it is easy. If you are patient then please try this recipe out. This recipe would be great to serve with Thanksgiving dinner. They taste great and would be divine served with some cinnamon butter.
