"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!"

"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."
