Looks like it would work in a regular 10". Thanks a lot. I'm going to give this a try.

They make something like that at a Jack Astor's, a local resto. They pour a lot of garlic butter on top. They are really good. I have copied and pasted the recipe. Thanks for sharing s&p.

I'd like to try these but I don't see any "fat" listed in the ingredients list. No oil, butter or shortening. Am I missing something?

No Katie, the only fat is the butter, brushed on the rolls before & after baking.

Thanks. I was hesitant to try them after seeing no fat listed, but from the looks of the picture, they're a winner.

in lieu of fat, the sugar should provide for some softness and moistness.

fixing to try these tomorrow -

uhhh, errr..... anybody try it / have an idea of what kind of dough consistency is needed?

as written the flour is a 40% variable. that's a tad much.....

Since I live in high altitude I really don't measure my flour (unbleached white) I start out with the minimum amount of flour and add a little at a time until it stops sticking to the mixer bowl (stand mixer) until it comes toghther, then knead for 10 minutes. A soft pliable dough is what your looking for.
