Thanks so much! This is this recipe I've been searching for. My neighbor used to bake this amazing homemade bread, and I've searched everywhere for something similar. This is it. I accidentally used bread flour instead of all purpose flour, and it turned out excellent. I also let the dough rise about 30 minutes longer and used melted butter on top and bottom of the rolls before I baked them.

Made these to accompany a stuffed rolled chicken breast recipe. WOW! One guest ate three! I used my heavy-duty mixer with the bread attachment, so I didn't have to knead as much. I am making these this Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have taken them to work this week and shared them. Even four days old (stored in fridge) and they are still wonderful. I did baste the tops with butter upon removal from the oven. Thanks so much!
