I'm pleased to share the recipe for these light and tender rolls, which I've made for 25 years. I once served them to a woman who'd been in the restaurant business for half a century. She said they were the best rolls she'd ever tasted.

Directions

MY REVIEW

These were absolutely delicious. Making them the night before surely makes it a lot easier, when preparing a big meal. My family said they were fantastic!!!

Light and airy! These rolls are delicious! I didn't refrigerate (couldn't wait to try them) and they still turned out great!

MY REVIEW

This is the only roll recipe I use now. My 11 year old is able to make these by herself. They are great for Thanksgiving or Christmas because you make them the night before. We just make them into a ball shape and put them in a pan to bake. They do great that way.
