While trying to find a yeast roll recipe that didn't intimidate me, I came across one in a cookbook that I bought from my daughter's Cheer Squad from 2003. The first time I made them, I followed the recipe exactly as written & they had way to much salt. I have made them three times since then, tweaking here & there to get the taste I wanted. Now I'm working on getting the look I want. They are still a work in process, lol.
