    Gwen Sargeant's Note:

    I have used this recipe for over 30+ years. I first saw it in a cookbook put together by factory workers. I received this cookbook as a gift and have since made it my main and favorite cookbook. It is so ragged and well used. I hope you enjoy them as much as I have making them.

      Simply OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious! This recipe deserves way more than 5 stars! I made the dough in my Kitchen Aid stand mixer, proofed the yeast for 10 minutes, it took exactly 4-1/2 cups all purpose four, I rose the dough for almost 1 hour, shaped the dough into 16 large buns, and rose them for 30 minutes, then baked them in my air convection oven for roughly 22 minutes at 375 degrees. This dough produced a wonderful fluffy melt-in-your-mouth texture when really can't get any better than this! If anyone is on the lookout for a fantastic bread/bun recipe then look no more, this one is it!! Gwen, I am so happy that I found your recipe, this is now my new favorite bun recipe.... thanks so very much for posting...Kittencal:)

      Great recipe for home made dinner rolls. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer for the kneading ( 3 minutes) and obtained perfect results using 4 and1/2 cups of flour. The dough was just slightly sticky at first, but after rising, it was easy to roll out with a light dusting of flour on my board. Usually I use bread flour to get flaky, tender rolls, but the recipe called for regular flour and that is what I used. Amazing! That saves money as bread flour is more expensive and not always on hand. The recipe does get confusing at the end but keep in mind you only let the dough rise twice. Once when you make the dough and again after you form them into rolls. I buttered the tops immediately after taking them out of the oven and let cool. Delicious!

      After finding this recipe, I will NEVER NEVER NEVER make another dinner roll recipe again. These were without a doubt the BEST rolls I've ever eaten. Super soft and fluffy, with *just* the right amount of sweetness. There was some confusion on how many times to let it rise (2 times vs. 3) and I let mine rise a total of three times (rise for an hour, punch down and rise for another hour, punch down, shape into rolls and let rise another hour before baking). I'm sure they're very good with only two rises, but if you have the time, please add the extra will NOT be disappointed! I have never had rolls quite so light and fluffy. These are 10 times better than rolls you get at a restaurant (even restaurants known for their bread!). Thank you SO much Gwen for an excellent recipe!
