Buttercrust Buns (rolls)

Judy Kaye


Yummy, My family loves these. They make a great addition to any meal or sandwich. I bake them in a muffin tin if I want rolls or in a buttered cake when I want buns and double the recipe to make large 10 buns. These days I half this recipe and put it in muffin tins to bake. One or the reasons this bread is so loved is that the finished product is as light as a raised donut.
