Sugar 'n' Spice Wreath (for Bread Machine)

Kathie Carr


This was a Betty Crocker recipe from the 1970's. We used this one in 4-H and it was a winner.

I have adapted the recipe to use with my bread machine which is not at all hard to do. Just follow the directions on the bread machine literature and you can turn any recipe for bread into a bread machine recipe.
