Reviews for Baker's Dozen Yeast Rolls
"Oh my stars these are delicious!!! They are known in our house by the name "yummy rolls" and they sure do live up to the name. The first few times I made them they weren't as fluffy as I wanted them to be and come to find out I had my water too hot and that was effecting the yeast from rising properly. I have started to check the temperature of the water first and it has made a world of difference. Yummy rolls indeed!"
"This is my go to recipe. I make different variations of this recipe depending on what I am cooking. You can't just eat one roll. Trust me. I've tried."
"I followed the recipe and it came out perfect the very first time.Thanks Taste of home"
"These rolls are soft and taste like a great homemade dinner roll. I would leave out the cheese next time, as I could not really taste it. Love the garlic topping!"
"I agree with others, leave out the cheese, couldn't taste it. Baked them for about 16 minutes. I also left out the honey and garlic salt."
"These were different because of the sweetness, but easy and quicker than other rolls. I'll make them again."
"Very tasty and yummy. I did not give the cheddar cheese 'cause it was not in my refrigerator. yet it was good enough.Everyone liked it."
"Great smelling roll, quick to get to the table but unfortunately, it turned out really doughy and we couldn't even taste the cheese."
"These were great from scratch rolls. I brushed tops with softened butter, fresh crushed garlic and chopped chives before baking. Very nice with my cornish hens!"
"Turned out so fab! Just a bit doughy but yea... I ate like 4 with my dinner. Terrible."
"Nice texture roll and with only a single rise time, quick to get on the table. I omitted the cheese, but otherwise made by the recipe."
"Made these today. Forgot all about the honey but they taste great without. Also go great with the TOH beef stew recipe. It was a great day for TOH recipes. I will be making these again. Like the idea of doing as crescent rolls."
"Thank you turned out great,, I used my new steam oven for the first time from rise to finish,turned out perfect"
"I made these rolls with grated Parmesan Cheese, I used minced jarred garlic on the top of the rolls. These were absolutely delicious!"
"Excellent taste and super easy! I added the garlic salt in the dough and just brushed the tops with butter. They looked and tasted wonderful. The kids asked for more!"
"I left out the cheese and just made regular plain crescent rolls. Did not brush any garlic or honey on top and instead just covered the hot rolls after baking with a clean dishtowel until serving time. Absolutely delicious, perfect, fluffy rolls. Not too sweet. Will be making these again."
"These were really awesome! Amazing! I really loved the cheese in this recipe and so easy to make."
"Excellent and easy to make. I didn't get the chance to put the honey/garlic on before everyone started grabbing them out of the pan."
"Question can I use bread flour instead of all purpose flour?"
"Yum. Thank you"
"If I could give more stars I would. This is the first time I have made yeast rolls that were edible. These were delicious!! My husband asked me to make sure I did not lose this recipe. This is easy, quick and so good. Normally my kitchen is where yeast and flour come to die. Well no more, thanks to this recipe. Much appreciation for posting this wonderful recipe."
"Delish! Served with no fuss potato soup :)"
"I loved this recipe! Fantastic! I just need to know, I need to double the recipe for Thanksgiving. Do I just double the measurements for every ingredient? This recipe was easy and they tasted so good!"
"Delicious and easy!"
"WOW! These are the best homemade rolls and so easy. I've made them every week for the last month. I have to freeze them to keep from eating the whole pan. Very soft and flavorful. I spray butter on the top & sprinkle with garlic powder. YUM"
"These were delicious ... and so easy to make. We couldn't really taste the cheese so I will probably leave it out next time. Otherwise, this is a quick, wonderful recipe. Nothing beats homemade rolls. My family loved them."
"I love this recipe. So easy to make. With or without cheese. I serve with honey butter. My family tells me they are better than grandma's."
"Excellent - I made them without the cheese and served with whipped honey butter."
"Just a note. Keep your yeast in the freezer and it will stay fresh for months. I always freeze mine and never have a problem with dough rising. I am going to try these tonight. They sound wonderful."
"I have been looking for a roll recipe that was quick. This is it!!! I was very pleased with the results. It's a keeper. Made it just like it said to."
"To Lindaseablom. The nice thing about using quick rise or rapid rise yeast is that you just put the yeast directly into a small amount of flour and your other dry ingredients then add the water. You should use a thermometer to test the water temperature. Your water must be between 120 and 130 degrees. If your liquid is too hot, you'll kill the yeast. If it's too cold,the dough won't rise properly. Personally I love this type of yeast and have been baking with it for many years. Hope this helps you. I haven't made this recipe but I will. This site won't allow me to submit this without a rating so I'm just going to say 4 stars.Sorry about that. I don't agree with rating an untried recipe."
"When making these did you put in the yeast as a powder or did you add liquid to yeast and let it proof before putting it in the flour? Thanks"
"I made these on a total whim. I didn't have garlic salt, so I just chopped up a garlic clove finely and added it to the honey and butter to make sure the garlic taste was there. My dough balls had to rise for about forty-five minutes (I think my yeast isn't as fresh as it should be) before I felt safe putting them in the oven, where they took fifteen minutes to cook. I took them out and put the honey/butter/garlic "sauce" on them, and showed them to my husband, who asked what those "globs" were. Well, now he is eating them and calling them "globs of goodness." We both love them! :)"
"So good my family could stop eating them."
"These are REALLY good and quick to fix. I will be making these a lot!"
"So good!! Added a little more cheese, but either way a great recipe. My family loved them."
"Wow these were awesome!!! I needed something quick to add with a beef stew that was cooking and in no time I had these wonderful tasting rolls. The only thing I did different was I forgot to add the cheese. The hubby said they were GREAT without the cheese. Will be making these again. Loved the garlic, honey, and butter flavor with the melt in your mouth rolls."
"Great for making fast homemade bread while you cook the rest of your foods. I sometimes omit the honey and drizzle butter with garlic salt over the top... Yumm!"
"All five of us love these melt-in-your-mouth rolls. A wonderful blend of sweet and savory make them good with or without butter. I love that I can make them without taking all day to do it. The only downside is that one recipe doesn't last long enough!"
"Of course, when I use this recipe for other dishes, I leave off the cheese, honey, and garlic salt."
"This is by far the best yeast recipe I have ever made. And it's quick too. Not much fuss. I make it even when I'm in a hurry. tonight I'm using it for stromboli. I've been making these for at least a year and keep coming back again and again."
"This was a wonderful recipe, so better homemade. Never again will I buy rolls from in fridge department!"
"These were so good and easy to make. My friends requested that I make them again."
"Have made this several times so far, for myself and friends. Everybody likes it so far."
"My husband and I call this recipe "death by rolls". Un believable! I make alot I mean alot of bread and rolls usually my own recipes. His is one I make exactly as written"
"Great recipe. I used by bread machine to mix, but next time I will not. I think the recipe is easier without it."
"I had made these rolls previously and they didn't turn out, however, I tried them again today with much better results! They were quick (about 1 hour start to finish), tender, and light. I will be making them again!"
"I did not put garlic salt on mine. Just the honey butter. They were fabulous!"
"Liked this recipe because it is quick and easy and every tasty."
"I tried these rolls for the first time last night, using no cheese, garlic, or honey, as the rest of the meal contained lots of cheese and garlic. They turned out perfectly. I did brush on just the melted butter after baking. What a nice recipe to have --- no need to head to the market for fresh rolls at the last minute, as these can be ready so quickly."
"These rolls are fast, easy and delicious! I certainly will be making them again!"
"These were wonderful. As others suggested, I mixed it in my bread machine. I did not utilize the cheddar cheese or the garlic since it did not fit with the other flavors in the menu. I used a scant 2 cups of bread machine flour and added a tablespoon of milk to the dough to reach the desired consistency. I followed the usual bread machine directions of liquids first and yeast last. It was such a hit, the kids suggested it should be a weekly feature at Sunday dinner."
"I made these using the "dough" setting on my bread machine. Turned out great and the machine did all the work."
"Amazing taste for a such a quick yeast roll! Stamp of approval from the family!!"
"These rolls are the best I have ever made. They turned out light and very good tasting!"
"These rolls are awesome and super easy to make! My husband is a "breadaholic" and he approves!"
"These were so quick. I did not have quick yeast on hand, but they still rose in about 30 minutes. These taste amazing and are one of the easiest recipes I've ever made. I'm going to throw out my old roll recipes and always do this. I used my KitchenAid mixer to do the kneading, so it was almost effortless. Thanks for sharing!!"
"If make these without the cheese and garlic, and they are SOOO good. I love yeast rolls, but usually have to start making them by 2pm to have them for dinner. The quick-rise yeast enables me to have them on the table, start to finish in under 1 1/2 hrs. I really don't bother to look at other roll recipes now--why bother, this one never disappoints!"
"I have made these 3 more times since discovering the recipe, all with RAVE reviews! I omit the cheese, we cannot taste the difference, other than that, I follow the recipe. My 3yo go excited today, because he figured out by the smell what i was making!"
"excellent, baked them 2/21 and today!"
"These are super easy, and some of the best rolls I have ever made. I've made them many times and they always turn out great."
"My 3 boys, my husband and I ate the entire pan of rolls! They were super easy, and super delicious! My husband said they were definitely a repeat!"
"I've never thought I could make anything that included the words, "yeast" and "knead", oh and let "rise". But this recipe seemed so good I deceided to try it. It is easy, delicious and now I am ready to try others with these same words in them! Thanks TOH.!"
"I have made these twice and my family REALLY likes them!!! I love the topping!"
"I am making these rolls for the second time this week, my family loves them? My suggestion to the people who are finding them too heavy is to only use the minimum amount of flour."
"these have great flavor, but the texture is a bit heavy...does this mean i am over kneading the dough? This is the first bread recipe I have EVER made and it was easy and tasty. Any tips on getting the texture of a Sister Shubert roll would be helpful. Thanks"
"These are great yeast rolls. I couldn't really taste the cheese, but they were yummy anyway. I would suggest that if you like garlic, add more of the garlic salt to the butter, as there was only the slightest hint of garlic on the top of the rolls."
"I had the exact same problem as Rose51. I finally claimed the free Simple and Delicious issue just to access the recipe. I had made these before and lost the recipe already, and they are actually worth this much hassle to get the recipe back - they are that good!"
"I made this recipe for my family and they loved them! Using the dough hook on my mixer eliminated the hand kneading. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Every time I try to see one of these recipes, it tells me I have to be a subsciber in order to see it. I subscribe to two of the magazines, so could someone post this recipe on this board so I can see it? Thanks."
