      Delicious yeast dough, but with half the rising time usually required for dinner rolls. The danger with these is that they are like potato chips... you can't eat just one. Straight out of the oven we had to taste test but that turned into two & three. I used my KA to mix initially & then stirred by hand the second time. I think these would be great with some garlic powder or fresh minced garlic mixed with the melted butter too. Thanks for sharing, Bonnie! Made for My 3 Chefs Nov 2008.
