The appealing homemade yeast-bread flavor of these golden rolls is unbeatable. Soft and light, they're great alongside any entree. Folks are disappointed if I don't bring them to potluck dinners.

"I have made 2 batches of these rolls every Thanksgiving and Christmas since 1999. I was just beginning to make homemade rolls and these seemed very easy to make. The first batch is made on Tuesday before Thanksgiving, because I know my family cannot wait until Thanksgiving for these delicious yeast rolls. Definitely a keeper!"
