I found these a bit spongy. I'm not sure if maybe they over-rose or if it's just a result of 2 packages of yeast. My husband thought they were tasty.

WARNING: THIS DOUGH IS VERY VERY STICKY!!! I have patience though, and it was so worth it. I know very well that the best breads and vanilla-based cookies contain milk as one of the ingredients. I specifically searched up milk just to find a recipe like this. It only has 2 tbs of shortening which I liked (fewer calories). I only used one package of yeast, because I was willing to spend more time. Yum

Great Rolls! I added about 1/4 extra flour because they were so sticky, and it took longer than55 mins but still really good!
