This rich, buttery yeast dough can be shaped into brioche à tête--little rolls with "top knots"--for a wonderful midmorning treat served with jam. It can also be baked in loaf pans or with Gruyere cheese for hors d'oeuvres.

Classic Brioche Recipe
A classic brioche should be tender, eggy and contain croissant levels of rich, delicious butter Sure, it requires a stand mixer (incorporating the butter by hand wouldn't be possible by most bakers' standards) and 24 hours, but the results are bakery-worthy It can be made in one day, but an overnight stay in the refrigerator will not only give the dough a deeper flavor, but it will also firm up the butter, making the dough easier to shape and handle when it comes time to bake.
