I first made these strictly following the recipe posted...they didn't rise and were basically doughy. Then I used Sarah Jo's recipe. I proofed the yeast first (about 10-15 min or until i saw it bubbling)and then added milk/butter mixture. I made a half batch and it turned out AMAZING!!!! I added the milk/butter to the yeast and added flour to make dough...i cover dough with damp cloth and sat on heating pad on med setting for 2 hours and it rose beautifully. I also used half the amount of brown sugar suggested and usual amount of cinnamon. I spread butter then put the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture in a sifter and spread so they were very even and sprinkled/dusted. Cut and placed in glass baking dish (pie plates) and sat back on heating pad and let rise even further. Baked for 25 minutes, They turned out PERFECTLY. Again, I followed Sarah Jo's review and put my own tweak in and they are great.
