    I used a bread maker and and they were super delicious. Fluffy and just sweet enough. Brushed the top with egg wash before baking and they were perfectly brown at the top. Love, love, love this recipe.

    I found in my oven the rolls needed 5 more minutes,but they are worth the wait. They are delectable! Easy and not very time consuming.

    Loved these!!! Big and soft, I buttered the tops and added some kosher salt.. this will definitely be my new roll recipe! Dough would probably be perfect for cinnamon rolls too!

    I have been making this recipe for years now. Very easy. I add just a touch more sugar as I like the rolls a little sweeter

    These are great. I often modify my ingredients to compensate for my sons food allergies and the fact that several of my family members are vegan. I sub vegan chia eggs for the eggs, coconut milk for the milk and coconut oil for the butter. They are always amazing and i normally double rhe recipe to make 3 loaves of bread as well as the rolls. My kids love it toasted in the mornings. No one ever believes me that they can be made vegan but i promise, they are as good as the original.

    I am an amateur cook and soon to be wife that decided to try and learn how to prepare homemade meals. I had never made bread before this recipe and was shocked when they turned out amazing! If I can make them, then anyone should be able to, they truly are easy to make!

    They were great the day I fixed them. However, they were a bit dry the following day. They are also a lot bigger than my family likes them. Will probably cut the recipe in 1/2 and only make 24 in one pan.
