These are just so yummy and cute too. I make these about once a week and store them in tupperware. They make excellent little sandwich rolls or allow us to always have fresh bread for meals. When I was little in Germany, my mom and her German friend used to make them without the luxury of a bread machine. The smell of fresh baked bread can't be beat!

I just made these for the Thanksgiving holiday and they are everything everyone has said. I had forgotten about using my dusty old bread machine and had been stressing about how to do home-made rolls while preparing the rest of the dinner. This worked perfectly - easy, stress-free and wonderful texture and flavor - so soft. My only mistake was not using enough butter spray in the muffin tins so they stuck a bit. I had way too much dough - so I used half and wrap the other in plastic wrap and tin foil, stuck it in the frig and then the next day took it out, brought it to room temp and then just followed the shaping instructions, etc. They turned out just as good. Thank you!

Rather than use muffin cups I made 16 freeform shaped dinner rolls. The rolls are light, easy and delicious! I do not have an ABM so I used my stand mixer. My rolls took about 17 minutes as well. I will make these again thanks for sharing your recipe.
