I made these one time to go with soup that we were having for dinner. I made the dough balls too big and/or let them rise too much and they ended up being huge, but they were good and they were easy to make.

Wow, these are some great rolls! Who knew that such delicious rolls could be so quick to prepare.I think this is going to be my only recipe for sweet rolls from now on.I absolutely loved how quick and easy it is to prepare!I followed the recipe exactly except that I used instant yeast instead of active dry yeast to cut time even shorter .Also,after kneading the dough I accidentally left the dough to rise without shaping it into rolls.Later on (after about 10 min.) ,when I realized that I messed up the instructions ,I punched the dough down and shaped it into rolls.I then let them rise for another 10 min .The rolls baked beautifully and where nicely browned after about 10 minutes in our oven.All in all,the results are great.Thank you for posting.
