1. Add flour, salt, butter, sugar in the pan of your bread machine. In a heat-safe bowl add the milk and microwave for 15 to 20 sec at 600w to reach about 40℃, then add the melon liqueur (or melon syrup), mix. Pour in the pan. Add yeast in your machine's yeast compartment. Select dough cycle and press start as per manufacturer's instructions.
2.Meanwhile make the cookie dough In a bowl, add unsalted butter and mix with a silicone spatula until it becomes smooth (if the butter is hard or just out from the fridge, then microwave it for 10~15 sec at 600w).
3. Add sugar and mix well until they blend well together.
4. Add Melon liqueur or syrup and mix well.
5. Add almond flour and mix. Finally sift the flour (45g) into the mixture, using a cooking sieve. Mix well until all the flour is thoroughly mixed. Be careful not to overmix the dough. Divide into 6 pieces. Cover with saran wrap and let sit in the fridge.
6. When the dough cycle is complete, remove from the machine and place on a floured surface. At the same time, take the cookie dough out of the fridge and to room temperature.
7. Punch the dough down and divide it in equal 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a round ball and cover it with a cloth. Let it rest for 15min.
8. Let's put it together... Re-shape each bread dough piece into a round ball. Place one piece of cookie dough on a saran wrap and cover with another wrap to press it with your hand. The cookie dough should end up a bit bigger than the bread balls.
9. Place the bread ball on the cookie dough and gently cover the bread ball with the cookie dough, using your hand.
10. Coat the cookie dough with sugar and place onto the baking sheet, seam side down. Repeat for the other 5 balls.
11. Gently draw crossed lines pattern on the cookie dough (3x3 or 4x4) using a dough scraper or a knife.
12. Cover and let the bread rise in a warm place until the dough has gone x1.5 in volume, about 50 to 60 minutes.
13. Pre-heat the oven to 190℃ and reduce the heat to 170℃ to bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack.
