First off, I followed the recipe exactly. While the flavor of these was good, something about the proportions of the ingredients seems off. The dough was very wet and sticky; so much so that it wouldn't hold it's shape. I ended up with sweet potato flat breads instead of rolls. I'll probably make these again but reduce the amount of wet ingredients to get a more typical dough consistency.
