    Lovely pillows of goodness! These do come out orange - not pink at all, it doesn't matter, they taste delicious. I made 2 oz rolls and got 2 1/2 dozen rolls. Thanks for a great recipe.

    This definately will be one of my favorite recipes for rolls, even though they came out more orange than rosy. They were absolutely delicious. Good flavor and very soft and tender.
