    HappyMommy1422's Note:

    These are wonderful rolls, especially when you slather them with butter. Even I can make these and I don't consider making bread as one of my specialities. My aunt and I compete at Christmas dinner to see who can eat the most. I'm not revealing my record. :)

    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup sugar

      Easy and delicious! I didn't roll these out; I wet my hands with water and formed them into balls by hand and put them in cake pans to bake. My family LOVED these. I will be making them again.

      These were so easy to make. Didn't take as long as I thought it would. I know wished I would of made a double batch. I will be making these again. My family loved them. My husband is telling me I have to make more tomorrow. Thanks for the great recipe.
