  1. These are wonderful!!! I made these last night for dinner to go along with a spaghetti pie and green beans and we all loved them. Great flavor and nice and moist bread on the inside and a nice crisp top. I also had some of the the leftovers for breakfast this morning, just heated them in some foil in the oven for about 8 minutes. Thanks for the recipe and congrats on your win in the football pool.
  2. Just a good, wholesome dinner roll with a soft texture and a hint of pleasant acidity from the sour cream. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
  3. I made these for Easter dinner. I forgot about melting and brushing the butter on the tops, but they were tender and tasty. Even good a few days later.
