      This is one of the first recipes I made with my KitchenAid mixer. If you have a stand mixer these rolls are no work at all. They come up nice and fluffy and are beautiful with the seeds sprinkled on top. I used quick rising yeast and found the dough doubled in size in about 30 minutes.

      I did 1/2 the recipe . I made the dough in my bread machine, which has a special cycle for quick rising yeast doughs-- ( quick dough cycle) --then I made 8 rolls and put them on a pie plate to rise. Before putting them in the oven, I painted them with the egg glaze. Then I baked them at 400 for about 15 minutes. The rolls came out wonderful!!! Everyone had two . Thanks for this great recipe-- I will definately make again.
