Maybe I've just never noticed before, but when I set my machine to "Dough" today, my machine kneaded my dough for twenty minutes. Also, while it pulsed and rested for a minute or two at first, the rest of the time the paddle turned without pause.
I'm using a Sunbeam 5891 2-pound machine, but I imagine that those of you using other machine can maybe answer my question.
Thank you. I appreciate the helpful responses to my previous request for advice on make smaller pies.
