      Oh my these are good! I did cut down on the butter a bit and substituted olive oil for some of the butter in the dough. It's a lovely dough to work with and rolling and cutting is very simple. The result is a beautiful, very aromatic pan of rolls with a nice crust on top and soft and chewy insides. Thanks, Ellie!
