Reviews for Maple-Oat Dinner Rolls
"I tried this recipe for a dinner party during the holidays and it was a huge hit. I would make again and love the "Parker House" roll look in the 9x12 pan."
"These are so good. I used my bread machine for the dough and then baked them as instructed. The coffee and maple flavors were so subtle and added so much to the taste. I served them at Thanksgiving and got many compliments."
