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

"These were easy to make with a Kitchen Aid mixer though time consuming. They were great warm and good the day made but didn't keep well. The next day not so good. If all will be eaten same day made a good recipe to use. Nice taste and size."

"I made these rolls last week, following the instructions exactly. Well, these are the BEST rolls I have ever made or tasted!!! It was easy to mix in my Kitchen Aid with the dough hook first, so that kneading it right out of the bowl was simple. The rising times were exact and in a few hours i had 18 of the tastiest rolls I have ever had. They are even better than those hawaiian rolls you hear about. Give these a try, you will not be disappointed!"
