      This is a great recipe for a basic dinner roll...distinctive yeast flavor, and it really is foolproof...and trust me, I am a beginner using yeast, so I HAD TO HAVE foolproof. I chose this recipe for 3 reasons, first, the title, second, there was no egg in the recipe, and third, I had a packet of rapid rise yeast and I thought with only one rising that this had to be the type of recipe to use it for. I only added a couple of tablespoons extra flour, and it was basically on the top and bottom of the mixture to be able to knead it instead of stirring it in. I actually just formed a rectangle with my hands instead of rolling, and cut into 8 equal portions. I put them in a greased 8 inch cake pan, and baked them at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. They were a light brown (which is what we prefer) but completely done. And they rose BEAUTIFULLY. Thanks for posting a yeast roll recipe that even a beginner can make.

      This was my 1st attempt at roll making; I wanted to make homemade rolls for Christmas dinner. But this was my trial run to see how it worked :-). I thought the dough was really easy to work with & I only used a few tsp of sugar--used butter, too! I think I rolled the dough out too thin, though--they came out flatter than I wanted. I thought the texture was great but my husband said they were more like the texture/size of biscuits. Hmmm...I think the recipe certainly lives up to the name, though--and will keep working with this I think!

      Good rolls. I liked the slight sweetness. However, they didn't need near the amount of time to cook that was mentioned. I only cooked mine for 15 minutes, and they were slightly burnt on the bottom. However, I made them on the slightly smaller size, probably because I have such small hands.
