    Thank you VERY much. This recipe is the perfect size. My Family and I enjoy Fried bread (Idaho Scones) with Honey Butter. Now that it's just my wife, myself and our last son at home, this recipe is the perfect size.

    Made these in a pinch to go with dinner tonight- they were a hit! I'd never made diner rolls before but they turned out great. Even my 2 year old loved them! This will be my go-to recipe. The only change I made was that when adding the second cup of flour, I made 1/2 of it wheat flour- I like the flavor- and they turned out great. Easier and cheaper than store-bought rolls or frozen dough, and tasted better too! Thank you!

    I realize this was posted quite some time ago. But, I just had come back to say this is a great recipe! I've made it multiple times now and the results are great. I've used butter, shortening, and a mixture of both. While the taste is a bit different with each, the result is always great! Try it and stick to the recipe and instructions. Two mistakes I've made are 1)proofing the yeast first, and 2) leaving the salt out until later because I was afraid it would kill the yeast. Just use fresh yeast and trust the recipe! It works! Thanks for posting such a great recipe. SIX forks!

    I agree about the 10 on these rolls. I actually signed up to let you know how good these were. I made a slow cooking vegetable chicken soup with these and had to reprimand my husband for eating his 3rd one before he had any soup...soup was too hot...yeah right. Really fast, really easy and really amazing! My new roll recipe.

    I made these last night for dinner. Fast, easy and delicious. I made only one change. I used butter instead of shortening. THX

    I'm eating one now. If I could give this a 10 rating I would! These are so quick, easy and delicious. It's nice and soft in the center and the outside has a lovely crust. This will be the recipe I use from now on. No more mixing and kneading and rising and making buns the old way for me again. Thank you!

    I'll try these.
    My Grandmother baked every kind of roll and bread that you can name...often making her own starter.
    My sister is a great baker like her. I can manage. These will be fun for me to try.
