      These were really, really good. I prepared this recipe "as is", letting the dough rise twice. Then I punched down I divided the dough into 4 parts, freezing 3 of them and baking 4 rolls with the last part. The dough freezes well. When I want to bake a batch, I thaw the dough overnight in the frig and complete the baking process the next morning. Quick, easy, and wonderful rolls in just over an hour.
