MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2010

These rolls were ok. I would suggest either lowering the baking temp or checking after 12 mins. Mine were in the oven for 15 mins and were pretty well-done on the bottoms.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2008

Can this recipe be made in my bread machine? I have carpal tunnel syndrome and it is hard for me to knead dough, anymore. Thanks
