I've had this recipe for years and years. I have no idea where I got it, but I do know its always a hit! I usually make these with part whole wheat flour.

I don't much experience with yeast doughs so was a little hesitant to try this, but so glad I did! This is an excellent recipe and it came out great my first time!! Highly recommend, this one is a keeper.
