Mimi's Rolls

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

These are the rolls that I have been making for years. The recipe makes a lot of them. You can make Parmesan Cheese Fingers with part of it or all of it (directions follow). They are so good. Keep dough soft for fluffy rolls.

Late posting this review, but this is another PAC 07 choice. I made one recipe from each person over the past few days, from the pple I adopted. I am visiting here in Canada at the moment. I made these Sunday. I love these buns! The only buns I used to ever love was my mom's and these are a CLOSE 2nd to hers. Easy to make and the smell in the house was heavenly to say the least. Followed the directions as is and turned out perfect. I will keep this one for usre, I don't often have success with buns but this one worked for me. I will make them again when I am at home and "attempt" a photo. Thanks Mimi.
