Top Review by Newbie Old Guy

Made these on Good Friday morning for unexpected guests; disappointed. Dough was VERY DIFFICULT to handle, although yeast was fresh they didn't raise to double in 90 minutes (in warmth). They smelled great baking and tasted fine - but frankly, I was glad the ordeal was over. I'll try other recipes before I make this one again.
