    This is my mother in law's recipe. I made these for my annual Christmas Brunch and they turned out great! (Prep time and cook time do not include rising time.)

      The flavor of these buns was great. The time rating on this recipe is not correct at all though. The whole process took almost 2 hours with both risings. It also took a whole lot more flour than listed. I used 7 cups (half white, half wheat) and then had to add some more when I rolled out the buns since the dough was too sticky to work with. The directions were not as clear as I would have liked for something I had never done before. For example, the directions keep saying to add things, but doesn't say if you were supposed to mix in between each addition, which I did. Everyone loved these buns and they rose superbly, so I will make them again. I just would have liked the directions to be more specific. Next time I want to try a cream cheese filling.
