Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I was in charge of the rolls for Thanksgiving dinner and didn't want to spend all morning making rolls to take. This recipe was perfect! I was able to make the rolls the night before and just put them in the fridge until it was time to go. Then we just threw them in the oven when the turkey was done. They were gone so fast that I almost didn't get one (my dh didn't). I made them again last night so I could have some in my freezer, and my dh finally got to taste one. He said they are "really good" which is a huge compliment from him. PS. Now I'm in charge of the rolls for all the family gatherings!

The only regret I have about this recipe is that I didn't see it sooner! I can't believe how easy these rolls are to mix up, partially bake, toss in the fridge, and bake the morning you're ready to serve them...They were so nice for Thanksgiving dinner...Made a huge flat pan for the family, and a few left over for dad and I to have the next day! Will definitely be making these again...They're just sooo good...Thanks so much for posting, Kiddo...We all enjoyed them very much... Laudee
