I have been using this mix several times a month for the last 3 years. It is excellent and very, very easy! I use it to make dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, hamburger buns, hot cross buns and more. I intend to sell jars of the mix at a bake sale later this month. I did make a change though. I increased the amount of sugar, dry milk & Crisco to 1 c. instead of 3/4 c. I liked the sweeter dough. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Try it - you can't go wrong with this recipe.- Joan in Illinois
