The first thing my guests ask when they come for dinner is if I'm serving these dinner rolls. The buns are so light, airy and delicious that I'm constantly asked for the recipe. —Thomasina Brunner, Gloversville, New York

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt

"I can't see how anyone would be disappointed with this recipe. Since I found it early last year, I've stuck with it as it's absolutely easy and the results are amazing. Am hoping to find a baked donut recipe."

"I wanted a yeast roll but I was short on time to make my regular recipe. These are really quick and turned out good. Not my as good as my go to recipe, but comes pretty close. Considering my prep/rise/bake time was cut in half, I was thrilled with the recipe. I would definitely make these again if I was short on time. I did not think they were salty or flat. Mine were fluffy and rose quite well. My husband who grew up on homemade bread every day really liked these rolls. I would not have a problem serving them to company."
