Delicious! I love that these only require a short rising time. I mixed in 2 1/2 cups of flour into the mixture and then sprinkled the remaining 1/2 cup of flour onto my wax paper for kneading. I did not have a problem with dough sticking. These do rise more in the oven. I will be making these again and again.

These were a hit with my family tonight with beef stew. I thought they would rise more, but I think it was just because of the angle of the picture. Looking at it again now, I can see that mine were smaller, as I made the 16 called for in the recipe, as opposed to the 12 in the picture. They did rise to fill my 10 inch cast-iron skillet. I loved the texture of these, with the slight crunch of the cornmeal, and the molasses was just right. You could taste it, but it wasn't overpowering or too sweet. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made these for Thanksgiving, thought it would be a nice change from regular white rolls. We really loved them they had a great flavor.

Great! Loved the combination of molasses and cornmeal. You can definitely taste the molasses and it adds a great color. Used the KitchenAid to mix and had to add additional flour to make it workable. Even so, it was still very sticky forming into rolls. Served with pork chops but would be great with any stew or soup. Something about serving a pan of rolls in the cast iron skillet says homey to me:) Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I thought these rolls were really good. My family wasn't quite as interested in them though. Maybe the molasses flavor was too intense. I think I'll try 1/2 cup of honey next time. They baked up beautifully in the iron skillet. I did find the dough extremely hard to work with though. The melted butter on top (salted butter) really made them delicious.

If you're looking for a change from the usual white dinner roll, this is it! I made these to go with Crock Pot Ham and Beans and it was a perfect match. They are soft and fluffy but are much more filling than other dinner rolls. All of the kids loved them too which is something I always love to see. I baked them in a 9" stoneware pie pan and it worked perfectly.Thanks for the keeper!

These are wonderful!! I just took them out of the oven and there's 3 left. Oh my word, delicious! I used my stoneware bundt pan so I uneven rolls but that doesn't matter at all! I followed the recipe exactly, otherwise. This is definitely a keeper! Delightful to have warm rolls right out of the oven so quickly! A big 5-star recipe!

I had problems with the recipe, but it was my fault for not fully reading the instructions. I hate to admit I scanned the recipe and failed to notice the rolls only needed one rise. I also dumped everything in the breadmaker on the dough cycle & was dismayed at the amount of flour I had to add. I then formed them into rolls and let rise (again). One pan promptly fell when I placed it in the oven. Not my best bread making day. =( I came back to the computer and quickly saw where I messed things up. The flavor though is FANTASTIC. I loved the texture and the sweetness from the molasses. I will definitely be making these again and promise to FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS next time. Thanks Susie!

These are so good!!! I made the recipe as written. The thing to note about this recipe is the reduced time to make. You can start late and still have hot rolls for dinner. Thanks for a keeper recipe.
