This recipe is great! The dough was gloppy and hard to work with. Next time I will grease my fingers before dropping in the pan. In my opinion, sweetness is good, but they could use a bit more salt. I just used plain shortening (which has no flavor at all) as the recipe called for. To me, they would have had a more buttery flavor if I had used margarine or butter, or butter flavored shortening. They were very light and fluffy, melt in your mouth. I let rise about 30 minutes the first rise, then about 30 minutes the second rise in the cake pan. Next time I will allow to rise a bit longer. I didn't use a muffin pan, just a 9x12 rectangular cake pan, and they spread out a bit, making square shaped pull apart bread, a little smaller than your average hamburger bun. I really think my pan was to big, and they expanded out instead of up. But all in all, I enjoyed the texture and the taste was a little bland, but once I spread some margarine on it, they were great. Next time I will add more salt and use margarine instead of shortening, or maybe a 1/4 t. of butter flavoring to the shortening mixture.
