I love that this is a bread machine recipe and I made it on a Friday night for Saturday breakfast. They disappeared very quickly the next day - I think my 15 year old son ate about 8 of them in one day!! It was eventually a lovely soft, rich dough, but I found that I had to add about 1/4 cup more liquid than stated to get there. I also cut down the sugar by more than half, yet they were still too sweet for my taste. All in all, a good recipe that I will use again - but with my modifications. Thanks for sharing.

Exactly what I was looking for! The perfect crescent roll recipe for the bread machine. This was scrumptious! They were a bit thick and stumpy in shape, so next time I'll roll the circles out to a larger diameter. We didn't think it was too sweet. Made them to go with Kittencal's Delicious Cream of Reuben Soup. Fantastic duo, thanks so much!

I used this recipe to make pigs in a blanket. I roll out the dough in a circle and cut triangles. Then, I roll the little smokies in the dough. Depending on how thick you make it, this recipe can be used for 2 packages of little smokies.

This could not have been easier to make. It was incredibly light even though my kitchen was a bit cold that day. Very tasty too -- though a bit sweet for a non-dessert roll. A note though -- the time on the recipe does not reflect the actual time from measuring things to rolls on the table. My machine is 90 minutes on the dough cycle alone and then there is the second rise. Think about 3-4 hours total.

I've made these twice now and both times they turned out great. You really need to watch the time in the oven though because they go from very light to dark brown real quick. I set my timer for ten minutes and then just watch them for the next couple to make sure they come out perfect.

Fabulous recipe. I had to roll mine out much larger than a 9" diameter otherwise they would have been too thick. Didn't think it was too sweet at all. Agree with the other reviewer that the total time posted on the recipe should have been around 4 hours. Overall, we are very pleased, and unfortunately, I probably will never buy a "thwock" can of Pillsbury Rolls again. I say "unfortunately" because my husband's eyes pretty much rolled back in his head when he had his first bite, so I know the "store bought" won't cut it in the future.

There rolls were a hit for Thanksgiving! I followed the recipe exactly, except I rolled my dough into about 15 balls. I first made them the night before, but I had to make more after everyone starting eating them and didn't leave enough for Thanksgiving dinner.

We loved this recipe. The rolls are so soft and airy. This recipe will take the place of the roll recipe that I have used for years.

Yum Yum Yum! I had to try this recipe because it was so talked about in the Aussie/Kiwi thread. I kept to the recipe as written but used egg substitute and I took mummamills advice and brushed the buns with butter. The whole group agreed they were the so yummy and one of the best sweet dinner bun they have ever had. Thank you Lovin' the 'Zaar
