These are so easy to make and taste great. I think they are best the day they are made.

Just made these! Very delicious and easy! Now that I made them, I can see that they are a canvas - could sprinkle sea salt on them, add cheese or even make them sweet. They are delicious as they are though! Very easy clean-up!

LOVE this recipe! My family has requested this 2x week for the last month. Great texture & taste of old fashioned yeast rolls in less than half the time. You should try this if you haven't been satisfied with rapid/quick rise yeast rolls/bread. This taste like yeast rolls should! We just love 'em.

Whole family loves these. Even tried making them w/half White Whole Wheat flour and they still had great taste and texture. Comes together very quick and simply.
