I think this is a great and easy recipe, But you don't really have to wait a whole week before you use it right? you can use it right away I mean? I have been trying to make bread at home, and it really has not come out right. But I will try this recipe.

This sounds like a great recipe! How thick should I roll out the dough?

From start to finish - about how long does it take to make these - just so I can have the rolls ready at the same time as the meal (always a problem for me...)

Also, do I need to let the rolls rise again after cutting and before baking? Thanks!
