    I have never had these fail. I'm always asked to bring these or make them for Thanksgiving or Christmas. They're always a big hit. They make a dozen good size rolls, I always double the recipe to make two dozen.

      These came out just right. I got to say that patience may be a key to making bread rolls. I have made some before but usually am in a hurry that something comes out wrong. This time I had so much time that they rose just like they had to even though it took longer for them to rise for me than the recipe states. Still, I followed all the steps just for the exception of the time as I just tweaked it a little bit giving it a little more time to rise. The dough was really good, and soft,fluffy and buttery once I placed the butter on top. Great keeper and I see now how easy it may be to make rolls without having to buy them.

      These turned out great! I thought it would be so much harder to make dinner rolls! I would recommend increasing the salt to 1 1/4 teaspoons. I also didn't use the 1/3 cup melted butter, but brushed 2 tablespoons melted butter on before baking and another tablespoon on before serving. These make 12 pretty large rolls. The second time I made 24 smaller rolls. They reheat/crisp up again in the oven very nicely. I'm making these ahead of time for my family's Thanksgiving this year. Thank you! :)

      This wasn't a bad recipe, it just didn't turn out the way I wanted it to so I must admit that I was a tad disappointed. The inside of the rolls were a bit too dense for a dinner roll and the outside didn't become the nice golden brown shown in the picture. The taste wasn't too bad but I felt it tasted closer to a biscuit than a light, fluffy dinner roll. I'd probably try this again to see if it wasn't operator failture or something. I followed the recipe to a T with no variations.
