  3. Shape dough into 2 dozen knotted rolls; arrange on a baking sheet. Let rise again for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Whisk egg yolk with 1/2 teaspoon white sugar until dissolved; brush tops of rolls.

I used half scalded milk and half buttermilk. The only other change I made was using 4 cups of Whole wheat flour and about the same amount of regular flour...the dough was pretty sticky so I had to add more flour. Excellent taste- my husband looked at the color said Pumpkin huh? But he had seconds!!

I liked this recipe, but found the rolls to be a little too sweet for my taste. Next time I will reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. Thank you, these will be great with our turkey dinner.
