I thought they might not turn out as the recipe I used was from the net and really called for more flour than it probably should have, I had decided to use my bread machine for mixing and kneading and noticed the dough seemed quite stiff, I did something that would have been IMO difficult had I been kneading by hand ( and I bet the real bakers around here will be horrified). I added water, it was pretty gummy looking at first, but the machine got it into a smooth ball before the kneading cycle was finished, I still had my doubts that it could be saved, but it started rising nicely and less than an hour later it was more than double, So I went ahead and shaped and let rise again and baked. DH thought they were great. They seemed fine to me, so all was not lost :)

I've corrected "too stiff dough" plenty of times with added water, no harm done!
