RECIPE down below:
This is a super easy bread to make in my Kitchen Aid Mixer. Its a cool rise bread. I make in the morning and it rises all day in the refrigerator. I pop it in the oven right before we eat and then we have nice homemade warm bread with our dinner.

Cool rise Italian bread

I use a Kitchen aid mixer: You can do this by hand but it will be a lot more work.

1TBL. Sugar
2 tsp. Salt
2 PKG. Yeast (4 ½ tsp. Yeast)
5 c. Flour (approx.)
1 TBL Butter
1 ¾ c. Water

Combine in your Kitchen Aid bowl: Sugar, Salt, Yeast and 2 c. Flour. Mix with a Rubber Spatula.
Heat the Butter and Water to 120*. Add to the bowl. Use the Rubber Spatula to mix the water/butter and flour/yeast mixture well.
Using the Dough hook..Mix on low, scrap bowl occasionally.
Add enough of the remaining flour to make a nice dough that forms a ball around your dough hook.
Sometimes you will need more flour other times less. Scrap the bowl a few times while adding the flour.
Knead 5 minutes. Put on a floured cloth,,, cover ~ rest 20 minutes.. cut the dough in half. Grease either the pan I used ( Ecko makes what we call the gutter pan AKA: Baguette Pans) or use a large cookie sheet. (or use a Baking Stone) Sprinkle the pan with cornmeal-- shack excess cornmeal off. Some people prefer to use ungreased cookie sheet.. using just the Cornmeal. That will work fine too. Roll each ½ of dough 15"X10",,, roll up tightly. Pinch seams and tuck ends under. Put on cookie sheet or gutter pan. Brush each loaf with vegetable oil. Cover with plastic wrap loosely. Refrigerate 2-24 hours. When ready to bake.. remove bread from refrigerator—uncover. Let it sit out on the counter for 20-30 minutes. If there are any air bubbles--- pop with a cake tester or tooth pick. Pre-heat oven 425*. Cut 3-4 diagonal slashes on the top of each loaf. Bake 20-25 minutes or until done. Cool on a wire rack. This bread re-heats nicely ( about 5 minutes) ..if u like it crisp like we do-- after its done baking do not cover with a cloth== if u like a soft crust then cover with a cloth.
