    Aroostook's Note:

    A great dinner roll. Or use this all purpose dough for cinnamon rolls, Swedish Tea Ring, or homemade "brown and serve" rolls. A keeper!

      Very easy to make. I like the fact that I can make it in advance and have fresh rolls whenever we need them. I made the clover leaf rolls per the directions. The rolls were very crunchy on the outside but soft and fluffy on the inside. There were oohs and ahs and sighs of pleasure coming from my family when I brought the rolls to the table.

      Excellent recipe! I followed directions exactly...except I used 1/2 whole wheat flour. It worked perfectly! I made one batch and left overnight in the fridge as a test for cinnamon rolls and they were GREAT! I am making a second batch right now as we are having a bake sale at church tomorrow and I can tout them as a bit healthier with 1/2 whole wheat! Thanks for a real keeper! Can't wait to try them out for everyday rolls!

      These made a rather sweet roll. I halved the recipe and it made 12 very large rolls. They're definitely tasty.
