Even the beginner cook can make these. And they're true home-made rolls. They must chill 2 hours. Or you can make them up 3 days in advance.

These were excellent! I thought the taste was wonderful and they looked beautiful. The dough was so easy to work with and rose just fine for me. I served these as part of my Thanksgiving meal and everyone commented on how light and fluffy these rolls were. Delicious!NOTE: I did knead the dough a bit before refrigerating it, even though the instructions didn't mention kneading.

These rolls tasted very good when they were finally done, but the problem was that it took a lot longer for them to rise than was posted in the recipe book. We ended up having them for a "post-dinner" addition. I would recommend these rolls to others, but make sure you leave plenty of time for rising!

I am always happy to try MizzNez's recipes. This is another practical and tasty one! Just a clarification for those of us who cannot buy "packages" of yeast. Rule of thumb is 1 teaspoon of yeast per one cup of flour.
