NotesI needed to bring hamburger buns to a Girl Scout campout, a long time ago and so I decided to make some. Put couldn't find a recipe back in those days, so used this recipe and made them in little tart pans. They were the first to be used that day and I have made them again and again. Also I do make regular rolls out of this great recipe.
