These are rich and full of butter! I recently shaped these rolls in balls. When they were done, I brushed the tops with melted butter and then topped them (a row each) with toasted poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, a combo of equal parts dill weed/kosher salt/sugar, and Parmesan cheese. I loved how they turned out.
