    I added the whole can of pumpkin, and it didn't seem to affect the rising time. Did increase the pumpkin flavor. Lovely rolls, will make again.  -  24 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe turned out well for me. However, instead of rolling up the dough into small weenie dog-like wraps as directed, I made small round loafs, about the size of a toddler's fist, and they turned out great.  -  06 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We loved these crescents. I used 5 Cups white and 2 Cups wheat flour. I let them rise all afternoon, so they were large.  -  16 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
