I realized early into making these that I only had 7 cups of flour, so I literally poured in half the already mixed potato butter sugar water mixture and proceeded to halve the remainder of the recipe (1 egg and 4 1/4 cup flour). That was really plenty! 12 decent sized rolls! I'd only do the full recipe if serving more than 6-8 people. I have learned with first time using whole wheat flour in several recipes that it is heavier. I think, from this point on, I'll mix regular and whole wheat flour. I also didn't get the rise I wanted (some but not awesome) in the time frame I needed (it is below zero outside and our house is at 67, even with the oven on, there isn't much "warm" air to help). They were still fluffy, but not as fluffy if I had used standard flour and helped (& waited) with warmer air for rise. I mixed in raisins. I added 1 tps of almond extract to the cinnamon sugar middle and cut some of the butter. Mixed it together before spreading all together. For the halved frosting, I used 2 tbs cream cheese, 1 tbs butter and vanilla flavored silk for the milk. The frosting was perfect for me in amount and flavor.
