Lela's grandma's roll recipe: The directions in the footnote say to divide the dough in half. OK, now I have 2 pieces of dough. Then divide each piece in thirds. I'm still OK with 6 pieces now. Here's where I get lost: finally divide the dough in 9 pieces to end up with 18 rolls. Huh? Should it be divide each piece in 3 to end up with 18 rolls, or 4 to get 24 rolls? If you're not as confused as me, please help clarify the directions. Thanks! They look yummy!

I think something is missing/wrong. I agree with your math. I don't see how you divide the 6 pieces into 9 either. Some roll recipes have you put 2 or 3 smaller balls into one muffin cup so you get a cloverleaf type effect. Perhaps that is the intent but the math is wrong. If you took each of 6 pieces and makes 9 tiny balls from each one you would have 54 of them. If you put 3 in each muffin cup, you would be back to the 18 rolls. That is the only way I see this working, but it seems like each ball would be very tiny.

Thanks Goodfood! I got 54 balls, too, but there are no directions saying to put them in muffin tins like cloverleaf rolls. I kept thinking if I divided the 6 pieces into 3, then I'd get 18 rolls, but wondered if they'd be *huge*.

Whoa, don't know what happened there. I posted an answer and now it's gone. As I was saying.....Thanks, Goodfood! Doing the matrh, I came up with 54 little balls, too, but the footnotes don't say anything about putting them in muffin tins like cloverleaf rolls. Even assuming you divide each of the 6 pieces into 3 or 4, I'm wondering of the baked rolls are *huge*.

Now BOTH responses are there! This stupid site and its technical issues are maddening!!!

Yea, my prior reply wasn't showing up a few mintues ago, so I decided to wait and try later LOL.....If you omit the 'divide in 3' step, then you take the 2 pieces and divide each of those into 9 which yields a total of 18. Since the recipe is for sometime of bun/roll, I don't think they intended to make cloverleaf rolls with their directions.
