I followed the recipe to the letter and a big glob of dough. there was NO WAY to knead it. What a mess..

Makes very tasty rolls. However, the dough is very sticky and a little difficult to handle. After forming a soft dough, I let it rise for 45 minutes (double in bulk) and punched it down before shaping into rolls. This recipe makes LOTS of rolls. I managed to get 36 rolls. I baked them in round pan, square pan and muffin pan - they look very pretty. I did not make the glaze. Instead, I drizzle chocolate over before serving. Thanks for the lovely recipe. Edited to add: I used 1 cup of WW flour because I was out of AP flour - works very well. I brushed with an egg glaze before baking to get the 'golden' look, then brushed with butter after baking for a soft crust. And I also brush the dough edges with egg to seal (works like a charm!)

easy to make. reheats well. 30 seconds when stored in fridge. i cut recipe in half. makes 9 inch pie plate. next time will make full receipe and individually freeze half. wonderful old fashioned flavor. i added raisins plumped in the microwave in a little water and drained. for the frosting a small ziplock bag with a corner cut worked well. i posted two photos of this. the closeup makes me hungry. tastes great!
