These fluffy rolls go perfectly with any meal. They have a delicious homemade flavor that's irresistible. I like them because they're not hard to make and they bake up nice and high. -Patricia Staudt, Marble Rock, Iowa

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup warm water (110° to 115°)

Directions

"Excellent recipe! They were over 2 inches and so light & tender. We will enjoy these many more times. Thank you!"

"I absolutely love this recipe. Instead of making rolls I made two loafs and they turned out AMAZING. They are soft and fluffy and very feeling. They went great with parsley salad and roasted marrow bones. And I even incorporated the basic dough for these rolls into a healthier and heartier version of my stable pizza recipe. And the best part is stays later there are still moist and delicious. Can't wait to make them again for Easter dinner."

"Excellent recipe. The rolls were moist and very tasty. I made this into bread loaves too. It turned our beautifully. This is a 5 star recipe and my husband agrees. Definitely a keeper."

"These are the very best rolls ever. I have been making lots of yeast rolls lately trying to find the perfect one. This is the best roll of any kind I have ever eaten - made by me or anyone else. I don't know what it is about this recipe. It's just magic! My husband who loves fresh bread, and has been happily sampling all the roll batches lately took one bite, turned around and said,"this is it"! I heartily agree. One problem - I crave these and want them every day with everything- breakfast, lunch, and dinner!"

"Beat until smooth? With the mixer?"
