      Very tasty! I made the basic recipe as written EXCEPT I added 1 teaspoon salt, omitted the egg wash, and did not top with additional salt. I made these into 12 sandwich thins, and topped each thin with a mixture of toasted sesame seeds and poppy seeds. Baked at 375F for 16 minutes. Tagged for The Variety Event 2014.

      *** Made for Variety is the Spice of Life Event 2014 ***<br/>My stepson and I made these roll when I was visiting him. We did the cranberry/pecan version. They were very good. I loved them warm, with some butter. While making these, he came up with some ideas to create different rolls. I left him a copy of the recipe, and am anxious to hear what he tries. Thank you swissms for this recipe.
