I wanted to try my hand at homemade rolls and these turned out really good! My BF had 4 and I had 3 with our dinner, so I would say we loved em! I will make any time we decide we want rolls, as they are an easy recipe and so tender and delicious!

These were delicious and so much fun to make! They really are not hard! I did knead the dough for 7-10 minutes before putting it in the refrigerator overnight. I made these for our Easter dinner so i let them raise while we were at church and then all I had to do was pop them in the oven! So good!
