The dough for these rolls has a nice texture and is simple to shape. The recipe came from an old church cookbook.

"I've never been successful making any kind of bread. I just thought I didn't have the knack for baking...Until I made these rolls. They came out deliciously perfect! Never thought I'd be so proud of a dinner roll. Pillow-Soft indeed. I will make these again...and again."

"I followed the recipe, and because of its size, i was able to mix the dough in my stand mixer with a dough hook (saved my carpal tunnel from acting up!!!). They rise beautifully, smell amazing, and taste even better. thank you so much for sharing this recipe :) A+++++"

"A very easy recipe for a super delicious dinner roll. I wasn't surprised to find this recipe at TasteOfHome.com, but I was very happy I baked these dinner rolls up. They are so light and moist and work great the next day for cold cut sandwiches. I look forward to making this recipe for Thanksgiving this year. I'm sure I'll get quite a few ooh's and ah's for these. Thanks for the recipe."
