Yummy moist breakfast rolls

Top Review by BakingBelle

I hate to be the first to post a bad review, but this really didn't work out. They tasted like buttermilk biscuits smeared with applesauce, and they were very tough. The icing needed way more buttermilk, as it was like a dough when I used only one tablespoon. My brother said they were so-so, my dad liked them (hence the 2 stars), and my mom also thought they were so-so, but we all agreed it needed more yeast. They had a pretty good taste, but were definitely not "yummy, moist breakfast rolls", or at least not when I tried them. The directions were a bit complex, so maybe I'm missing something? Let me know!
