I made these rolls twice. Once as written, second with 1/2 tsp. more salt, which I preferred. Also, the recipe might make 24, but I only got 12 nice-size, which is perfect for us, and they took 15 minutes to bake. I gave these a high rating for taste, prep time, and texture. Added an egg wash just before baking.
