    3. Stir into dry ingredients.

    9. Melt remaining butter.
    10. Drizzle about 1.5 tbsp melted butter over balls; sprinkle with 2 tbsps remaining sugar.
    11. Repeat layers twice.
    12. Cover tightly with plastic wrap; refrigerate 2 hours.
    13. Remove from refrigerator; uncover dough and let stand 10 minutes.
    14. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until done, covering with foil after 30 minutes to prevent excess browning.

    17. Sift powdered sugar over tops and sides of warm loaf.
    18. Cool completely.
