I don't know what I did wrong! I was so excited to find this recipe, as it seemed like it would make my Christmas go a lot smoother as I prepared a Christmas feast. I followed the recipe to the letter, except for having to add about 1 cup more flour in order to make a soft dough. I think it actually needed even more flour than that, in the end, as it was still really sticky. That or reduce the amount of liquid. Other than the extra flour though, I followed the recipe to a "T," even paying excruciating detail to the temperature of the water with which I proofed the yeast and which was added to the dough. I left it in the fridge overnight, but when I checked on it the next morning, it didn't look like it had risen at all. I left it, since I didn't need it just yet. But when I took the dough out of the fridge to form the rolls, I could tell as I worked with it that it was still extremely heavy. It didn't punch down at all, so I know it didn't rise at all. Not even a fraction of an inch. Nothing. At that point, I just wound up chucking it. I don't want to give this recipe no stars, but I also don't want to give it five stars. I really just have no idea what I did wrong. But then, I always seem to ruin yeast-risen breads somehow, so maybe it's just me. This recipe seemed too easy to fail, but unfortunately, it didn't work at all for me.
