I've been making this recipe for several years but I don't remember where I found it. It's very good with Italian dishes.

Yummy! I cut the sugar down to 2 tbsp and they turned out perfect. I also used olive oil instead of butter (personal preference). Next time I would probably put a little more garlic on them and some garlic in the dough as well.

Easy and VERY tasty! I've made these 3 times now and every time the rolls just disappear. I don't roll and stretch the dough, I just pull at it from the machine and roll it into balls that I drop onto a greased 9x13 glass pan. Giving them time to rise is the key to light and fluffy rolls. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that is a keeper in our house.

The rolls turned out as I imagined them. They were soft and the garlic, butter, cheese combination was perfect. However, there was one drawback: My husband commented that the rolls made him think of 'holiday cookies'. When prompted to explain what he meant, he said that they were 'a little sweet' in an uncritical, questioning tone:-) I knew he was right after my very first bite, though I tried to ignore it. So, knowing that baking is a science and a change of ingredients can have a big impact, I cannot suggest reducing the sugar; but the dough is a bit over-sweet.
