    Ingredients call for water but directions do not include water.

    It was a very easy recipe and had wonderful texture, but I found it a bit flavorless. I’m going to use a bit more butter and salt next time. I may try out a different brand four as well. I used a bread flour thinking it would make for a better roll but I’m not sure if that made a difference in its flavor.

    They were ok a bit dry and flavorless. I’m not sure I made them right because the dough was not soft or sticky. Might try them again with less flour. Also maybe more salt or sugar for flavor.

    These were a hit at our family Christmas Dinner and easy enough for my niece to help me make them. Makes 24 generous sized rolls...more than enough for our family of 15. The rolls were big, soft and had great flavor....just the right touch of sweetness without being too sweet. This is definitely a keeper recipe!

    Pretty darn good but not the world’s best. They are very easy to make so overall it earns five stars.

    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.

    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!
