Light, Fluffy, Sweet--it is just what you want in a dinner roll. Don't wait until the holidays to try these! These turned out like restaurant quailty. I am really impressed with the texture. I used all purpose flour with good results. Thanks, NIkki Kate, this recipe will be added to my "Best of Zaar" cookbook and I will make them often! KCShell

I just finished making these and only made 12. Yes, they are large great for left over turkey sandwiches. I have always have trouble with rolls but these are terrific(had to do taste test) Thanks for the recipe. Need to make another batch cutting the size in half. Followed the recipe exactly.

These are more like biscuits that require quarts of sausage gravy- my back side is fluffier than these dry hockey pucks!
