Love your buns BB. :) Great taste and easy to mix. I did have a bit of trouble putting the dough into the muffin tin. Sprinkled it with additional flour, and it was much easier. I cut the recipe in half, and ended up with 10 rolls. (there was no mention of what to do with the egg, so I mixed it into the milk/shortening mixture) I probably could have stretched it to 12 if I had been a little smarter. There were a couple that were bigger then the others. lol I suck at portion control. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, we'll be having them with pot roast tonight....if I can keep Billy out of them. Made as a salute to Ed.
