    Can someone tell me how to warm the dough after being inside the refrigerator overnight? Thanks!

      I also used the fridge method, but I suspect that your fridge is a bit too cold for the dough ( for I know that mine was, then a friend told me that yeast dough could slow-rise in the fridge, if the temperature doesn't go bellow 7°C, which is about 45°F for you american folks). However even with my chilled dough, it turned out to make surprisingly nice buns. I flattened the dough with my hands to warm it up, then I used a rolling pin to shape it into a properly sized rectangle, being careful not to apply too much pressure. Then I made my rolls, and let them rise for an hour or so, before putting them in the oven. And it worked really well. It made really moist well risen buns.

    Very successful recipe, I made it several times, I also had cut it in half and it was perfect, also I didn't use the bread flour I just used all purpose flour instead of it and it was great.

    It's frustrating that this recipe says you can refrigerate the dough overnight but then does not give any direction on how to prepare the dough for use the next day. It should say to pull the dough out of the fridge so many hours before you need to use it as it needs to come to room temperature.

    I made this recipe and it turned out quite well. This is a great recipe for those who have never worked with yeast before.

    I am so much under a great impression - I am a beginner baker and I am making this dough exactly as I saw on Martha Bakes and it is the first time that it comes out and feels exactly as it says on TV. This is the second time that a Martha Stewart recipe is a success - thank you so much.

    @alev_ada I tried it and it worked despite curious order of steps. Delicious!

    This recipe strikes me as strange because every baking book for advanced bakers including proffessional ones recommends kneading flour, water, yeast and sometimes eggs BEFORE you add fat and sugar. This is because fat and sugar inhibits the formation of gluten. I am wondering then if this recipe actually works.
