So simple and so good! I brushed the tops with garlic butter and served them with pasta and sauce.

I have not been good with yeast in the past....ever.....But I keep trying. These turned out perfectly. I will stop looking for better recipes. The only thing I did differently was sprinkled a little sea salt on them after the melted butter. EXCELLENT !!!!!!! The best part (other than they tasted sublime) was that they took so little time.

Easy and delicious. I sprinkled Italian panko crumbs on top of melted butter. Thank you, Thomasina for sharing this recipe.

I can't see how anyone would be disappointed with this recipe. Since I found it early last year, I've stuck with it as it's absolutely easy and the results are amazing. Am hoping to find a baked donut recipe.

I wanted a yeast roll but I was short on time to make my regular recipe. These are really quick and turned out good. Not my as good as my go to recipe, but comes pretty close. Considering my prep/rise/bake time was cut in half, I was thrilled with the recipe. I would definitely make these again if I was short on time. I did not think they were salty or flat. Mine were fluffy and rose quite well. My husband who grew up on homemade bread every day really liked these rolls. I would not have a problem serving them to company.
