These were very nice, soft rolls, and I liked the croissant-like shape. In case the recipe isn't successfully edited, I think you should add the eggs, lightly beaten, into the milk along with the butter.

Eric, thank you, thank you, thank you! My grandmother who passed away used to make these and I could never find the recipe. They are the best! I am now a military spouse overseas and miss home so much. You have just brought a piece of America home to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ~Proudmilitarywife
