A cousin in North Carolina gave me the recipe for these delicious honey-glazed rolls. Using my bread machine to make the dough saves me about 2 hours compared to the traditional method. The rich, buttery taste of these rolls is so popular with family and friends that I usually make two batches so I have enough! -Sara Wing, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

"These are very good and are relatively simple to make. They are great to make for a company dinner - so good! They are quite tasty too even without the glaze (though the glaze is yummy)!"

"Me and my parents really love these rolls! Even my dad and he hates everything new. We made them as stated the first time, but the glaze mostly just burned a little, which I hate. It didn't seem to add any flavor. The next time we decided to leave off the glaze and instead of separating the eggs we used two, and a little more honey in the dough. I drizzle honey over them when they come out of the oven and they are perfect just like that."

"So good! Made this recipe without a bread machine. Simply mixed the ingredients as directed and kneaded for about 7-8 minutes. Let the dough rise for 1 hour then followed the recipe instructions to shape rolls, let rise again and bake. Wonderful texture and just a hint of sweetness from the glaze. Will definitely make again."

"My rolls did not rise at all going right by the recipe. I cooked them anyway and all the glaze came down and burned in the pan. What did I do wrong?"

"Absolutely perfect recipe. The rolls came out soft and spongy, almost like cake."

"Excellent rolls! I'm not a big fan of glazed rolls, so I've made them with and without the glaze, and they're wonderful either way."
