These are good, but mine didn't rise as well as I'd hoped. They still had great flavor and were only a bit heavier than I wanted. I reduced the sugar to 1/3 cup, added an extra quarter cup of whole wheat flour and brushed with an eggwash instead of more butter. I also added an extra half teaspoon of salt as per a reviewer recommendation (but I used unsalted butter as well, so I don't think it was enough to affect the yeast). I was wary to use a third packet of yeast because I'm at a high altitude, but I think I'll try that next time (and be sure to use warmer water with more of the sugar in it for proofing the yeast, not to overwork the dough, and to let the dough rise in a warmer room). I'll update at a later date if my results are better the next time around. I don't think my less-than-perfect results were due to the recipe itself.
