My family loves this recipe, it's the perfect basic dinner rolls. I use softened butter instead of oil but other than that I follow everything exactly. They turn out great every time.

Awesome recipe! I have made this recipe several times and we love it! I always put in 1/4 cup whole wheat flour. The bread is soft. I have made it in bread machine, in oven, and as dinner rolls. I get 15 rolls and bake them longer but could be my oven--I bake for 17 minutes. Recently froze half as dinner rolls to see how top reviewer suggestion worked. And appreciate the idea of saving them for busy day. After putting frozen in greased pan and covered on countertop, they were ready for oven six hours later. Cool here today so probably makes a difference.

Did on the dough setting, exactly as recipe except I used olive oil (just grabbed it out of habit). Once done in the machine I split it into four pieces & put in mini loaf pans. Let raise about 25 minutes & bake about 22 minutes. They were huge, finished loaves were twice the height of the pan. I forgot to grease the pans, no worries they slid right out. Top crust was a beautiful brown crust really good, the crusts that were inside the pan were nice tender soft crust. Best of both worlds. Inside was awesome tender soft bread.

I made dinner rolls and used 1/8 cup of sugar. I didn't want them too sweet. They have a light texture. Great taste. Thanks DDW :) Made for Name that ingredient tag game

Really good bread. Nice and soft. I used 2 cups wheat flour and the rest white.

This recipe makes the most amazing rolls! Really soft bread, and delicious old-fashioned taste. I agree with another poster who said that it would probably be too soft to cut into slices if you made loaves. I am by no means a successful bread maker (if the bread machine doesn't do ALL the work, my efforts usually tank), but I took a chance with these and I'm so glad I did. I've made them several times now, and they are consistently wonderful.

Perfectly sweet, fluffy and still heavy like a dinner roll should be! I have many types of dinner roll recipes but this one is the one we have been searching for. I did not need to add the extra water. I oiled my hands like suggested and what a great tip that was! I will always do this. I would like to share another great tip on raising the dough- I used the bread machine for dough only. While you're doing the 15 rolls heat a mug of water up really hot in the micro and then put the mug in the corner to keep it warm inside. Cover your pan with saran wrap and put it in the micro, leaving the mug in there too. It's the best way to raise the dough I have ever found! Happy Baking!

I made the bread without the egg and it turned really well. It had a soft center but was just perfect for sandwiches. I will have to make the rolls next to see how they turn out. Thanks for the recipe.

This is an awesome, easy to make bread! Love the texture and the taste. Made it in the bread machine and it turned out perfect, crisp on the outside and soft in the middle. Didn't make any changes. Thanks DDW for a keeper recipe.
