"I've been making this dough for about 15 years by memory & I just recently came across what I'm pretty sure was the original written recipe. Turns out my memory isn't as good as the dough I've been making is. So now I'm posting my often used & requested recipe before I forget it. I use it for basic dinner rolls, sweet rolls, cinnamon rolls, savory breakfast pinwheels or for my taco ring. I don't usually measure the flour, but the noted amount is within about 1/2 cup more or less. Prep time includes rising time."

"Delicious and easy, a perfect combination in my book! I froze half and am looking forward to how they come out. I have to go to bed so I can quit eating them...................."
"These rolls are wonderful. I am an avid bread baker, always tweaking the recipe; however, these are perfect as is and my new favorite! They make great little sandwiches with leftover holiday turkey or ham, yum."
"I made these rolls before but I don't think I ever did a review. They are easy and delicious. Today, I made this recipe & used half for crust for veggie pizza. Not only did it work but I think it's my best veggie pizza ever. Thanks for posting the recipe Tink! Made and enjoyed for Jenna's going away party today."
"This was my first attempt at making homemade bread/rolls. It took a little bit of time but I think one of these days I will get the hang of it. They tasted great tho."
"I have been wanting to make these rolls for some time now. I'm so glad I finally did. They are easy to prepare, and they are very tasty fresh out of the oven. I did as stated in step #13 and split the dough in half and froze one half of the dough (to have fresh rolls at another time). So I made a dozen rolls for tonight's dinner. And they are all gone, there isn't a single one to snack on later! They are that good. I can hardly wait for the next dozen! Made for Summer Spectacular 2009."
"Yummy rolls!!!! I don't have a stand mixer so I followed the beginning directions using a hand mixer, then used a wooden spoon and hands for adding the remaining flour. I also only made 1/2 of the recipe. I served them with roast beef in wine sauce, corn and mashed potatoes with gravy for a wonderful Sunday dinner!!! The whole family loved the rolls!!!:-) Thanks Tink for sharing your recipe!!! Made for ZWT 5."
"Great rolls and very easy to put together. I will definitely make these again. Made for ZWT5"
"These were great! We had them with our soup tonight for dinner. Very moist/tender and oh so good. I will be making these again. Thanks for the great recipe. Made for PAC March 2009."
"These went great with my clam pasta dinner. They were good to absorb all the juices. The ease of making these alone deserves 5 stars. Rolling out was no problem, and they were so tender in the middle, just the way we like them, not to mention how good they tasted! DH commented I could make these again soon, so I guess I will be! Thanks for sharing!"
"Yummy rolls! Very good out of the freezer & I will be making more to freeze."
"I made the dough to use in Recipe #322040 and froze the other half of the dough for later. It has a slight sweetness that worked well paired with the spicy taco filling. The dough was also VERY easy to roll out and easy to cut. No sticky mess to deal with which I appreciated. I look forward to using this recipe many times. Thank you for sharing your recipe!"
"Hi Tinkerbell; Made these dinner crescents yesterday and they turned out just perfect. I baked them for 12 minutes and they had just a light brown color and the inside was so nice and soft. I also used Fermipan yeast, worked just perfect. Will be making them again many times over. Thanks for sharing. "Uncle Bill""
"LOVED this recipe! I made these for DH's home coming feast! The dough is VERY easy to work with! It's not too sticky and not too dry. When rolling it out I hardly had to use any flour on the surface. My DD is a very picky eater. It's very hard to get her to eat anything other then dairy products. She's been walking around the house eating these rolls. I made these last night and she's having a roll right now. My DH really loved the rolls as well! The bread has a nice flavor. This is a new family favorite recipe thanks for posting!!"
"My husband and kids all love this recipe for rolls. I admit I don't have a knack for rolling out the dough and shaping it into perfect little crescents, but they don't seem to mind! Yummy!"
"Great rolls! Very soft and flavorful. It is no wonder that you had made this from memory for many years because this is definately not a recipe that you measure precisely but one where you know the look and feel of the dough at various stages. The instructions regarding "spoonfuls" of flour is accurate as it would be easy to over-flour. My son has requested that I use this recipe again. Thanks Lorilyn!"
