    These rolls were easy to make for an inexperienced bread baker and they were great! I will definitely make them again. I will probably make smaller rolls and get more than a dozen from the dough.

    These rolls sound delicious,quick and easy but when I am baking yeast breads/rolls I am definitely going to make a larger quantity. I will try them as a quicky recipe.
