Excellent recipe! I followed it exactly even though I was skeptical about leaving out a mixture of dough containing eggs out overnight, but I was determined to have these come out perfectly. Boy were these ever good and so easy too! The dough was easy to roll out (used wax paper lightly floured) and I cut it with a pizza cutter to get nice little triangles. I baked these on parchment paper and they came out nice and fluffy with a slight sweetness. My husband and niece just loved them and quite frankly I did too! Plus the leftovers are great for breakfast with butter and jelly....

They were horrible! I followed the recipe to a T, and when they came out - the rolls were dry, tasted sour, and the sugar didn't make it taste right at all. It needs more butter, less sugar. Pillsbury dough tastes better than this. I was very disappointed.

I put all ingredients in my bread machine and set it on the dough cycle; followed the directions from there and ended up with terrific rolls. I had a bit of trouble making them all look the same. My husband loved'em!

Light, fluffy, easy, delicious ~ and YUMMY! Couldn't ask for an easier recipe. You can cook them immediately, but I prefer to let them sit overnight as the recipe calls. They seem to come out fluffier. (not to mention the smell of fresh bread dough is simply wonderful on a cool fall morning!!)

I have this exact same recipe from one of my Gooseberry Patch cookbooks (Make-Ahead Dinner Rolls), and it says to prepare the dough, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. I have made these many, many times to my family's delight. I never made rolls from scratch before, but these couldn't be easier to prepare. The dough is very easy to work with. You must try this recipe!

When you need to save some time in a busy day, being able to prepare the dough ahead is a real help. The rolls are really nice and light, draw lots of raves and requests to serve them again.

I baked these for Thanksgiving and everyone including myself loved them. They were light and very tasty, slighty sweet and buttery. I've been baking for about 35 years and am suprised at the negative reviews given. I have never made rolls that were as easy and that tasted as good. Thanks for the Recipe!

Like most bread, these were great just out of the oven with butter, but once they cooled, I felt they lacked flavor and were a little heavy.
