I made these rolls for my Christmas dinner. First time ever making dinner rolls turned out wonderful! Followed recipe exactly as written and they baked up nicely. Not sweet at all, although I did not make the glaze, which I'm sure makes a difference. Great starter recipe for someone learning to bake. Will make again.

I hadn't used my bread machine in years until I saw this recipe and just had to try it. WOW! This is the best. Good to keep in the freezer as well. My bread machine is gonna get a good workout from now on!!

These rolls are so good! I made two batches last weekend. I wasn't paying attention and used 100% whole wheat four. The dough didn't rise all that much, but I figured I would use it anyway. I then went on to make another batch with regular AP flour. I baked them all up with the glaze, and they were amazing! Wheat and regular alike. I used my bread maker to make the dough. So easy! Give this a try.I think I might make a loaf of bread next time with the dough. It has such a nice texture that I think it would be great for sandwiches or just toast.

I love bread recipes for which I can use my bread machine to save on time. This one is now a family favorite! The rolls are very light & flavorful, even without the glaze! I try to cut down on sweetners, so when another reviewer said these are equally delicious without the glaze, I decided to try them. Our family of four had them gone by the end of the next day! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These are very good and are relatively simple to make. They are great to make for a company dinner - so good! They are quite tasty too even without the glaze (though the glaze is yummy)!

Me and my parents really love these rolls! Even my dad and he hates everything new. We made them as stated the first time, but the glaze mostly just burned a little, which I hate. It didn't seem to add any flavor. The next time we decided to leave off the glaze and instead of separating the eggs we used two, and a little more honey in the dough. I drizzle honey over them when they come out of the oven and they are perfect just like that.

So good! Made this recipe without a bread machine. Simply mixed the ingredients as directed and kneaded for about 7-8 minutes. Let the dough rise for 1 hour then followed the recipe instructions to shape rolls, let rise again and bake. Wonderful texture and just a hint of sweetness from the glaze. Will definitely make again.

My rolls did not rise at all going right by the recipe. I cooked them anyway and all the glaze came down and burned in the pan. What did I do wrong?

Absolutely perfect recipe. The rolls came out soft and spongy, almost like cake.
