I tested about four different dinner roll recipes before finally deciding that this was the best one. I was a little nervous at first because it seemed that they weren't rising fast enough, but I was patient and waited until they had doubled before putting them in the oven. The end result was a light and buttery dinner roll. Took me straight back to my childhood. This recipe's a keeper!

These were so easy and SOOOO tasty!! Even my picky daughter loved them! I did as another reviewer and pinched the dough into 16 equal pieces and then rolled them in my hands to make round balls. They looked awesome! A definite must-do again!

I made this for Christmas, it needs way more butter in the pan for these rolls than stated. I even poured some melted butter with garlic on the top to add more flavor. However, I did love this recipe and will make it again. My daughter brought over her God Children and the little boy that was two years old, he refused to eat anything but these rolls, he loved them so much and if he could talk better he would have so himself but the look on his face as he ate all 4 said it all, we had to stop him from eating them.

I'm so glad I found this recipe! These were so easy to make and about as close to my grandma's homemade as can get without all the time and trouble. I can say for sure these will be made often at my house! Thanks so much for posting!

These were a smash hit at our Xmas dinner, and I'm looking forward to leftovers tomorrow! I used half bread flour and half all-purpose, and they were simply stupendous! Thanks!

These were good, pretty tasty. Maybe it was using the all-purpose flour instead of bread flour, or maybe it was the way mine got crunchy on the buttery bottoms, but I was a little disappointed. I'd expected a softer, more refined roll, I think. Baked 12 minutes, followed directions exactly, using our new Cuisinart bread maker (CBK-200). I don't know where the two hours prep time, plus 2.75 hours cooking/baking time comes from--it's only 12 minutes to bake, and my machine did the dough in an hour and 40 minutes, plus an extra 30 minutes to rise... so it's about 2.8 hours total to make these rolls. Thanks for posting! Edited to add: the crunchy bottoms disappeared overnight, so the rolls were better the second day.

Made this for Pick A Chef '08 and am soooo glad I did! Do not skimp on the butter. Note: the dough cycle is a long one, over an hour on my machine I found out, so this is not a quick recipe, but well worth the time! And you better double the recipe even if you don't think you need too. These dissapeared faster than candy in our house. Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! DH LOVED these. I just got a bread machine. I had never made rolls before and these were awesome! I may use less butter on the bottom of the pan next time, but that's just a preference. Hubby may not allow any changes! These are so easy. Thank you!

They are really easy to make. I didn't drop by tablespoon. I just divided the dough in 16 servings with a knife. That way it was easier. Thanks LonghornMama :) Made for beverage tag.
