Recipe Notes

*The first time I made this recipe, I used oil, and while they were delicious, they turned out a bit dense. When I used melted butter, they were much fluffier.
**I made a batch of gluten free rolls using Krusteaz Gluten Free Flour. They were a little denser, but they tasted pretty good!
