This is an excellent recipe! We're not crazy about sweet dinner rolls, so I reduced the sugar to two heaping tablespoons. The dough is supple -- luscious, in fact. The rolls freeze very well, too! I've been making a batch of rolls every other week or so, since the weather turned cool, and freezing most of them in packets of 2-rolls, as an alternative to toast on the many evenings that I serve Mr T soups, stews and braises. These are a real winner. ;o)

Antonia, this is beyond a regular query but I remember you mentioning a bulk foods store in Oakland that's particularly good. I thought I wrote down the name, but.... Could you respond here with its name? Thanks!
