These are so easy yet so good. I just finished a batch, I made a few alterations, I doubled the recipe, added a 1/4 cup butter to the batter(i LOVE butter :]) I let them rise for about 15 minutes(this made them more fluffy), I didn't fold them in half, I made them like biscuits and beat and egg white and 4 tablespoons of butter together and brushed them on top. They came out awesome I will definatly be making these again.

The fact that these are called "rolls" is misleading. They are in fact biscuits. The flavor was okay but they were not nice enough to serve with our Easter dinner. We ended up making something different.

These "rolls" did not rise. Although they did have a good flavor, these are definitely not yeast rolls, they are biscuts.

These are really, really good, and easy enough to make for dinner any night.

My husband loved these. No-they aren't a true yeast roll, but we found them to be lighter than a biscuit too. I did allow the rolls to sit in a warm spot for about an hour before baking, and they rose a little. Maybe that's what made them so fluffy. Skipped the butter inside, but did brush them with melted butter when they came out. I will make these often instead of biscuits.

Oh my. This is fabulous. Im not sure what was done to make some people think these taste like biscuits....but they are melt in your mouth yummy! I cut them thicker and didnt add any butter till they were done then just brushed some over the tops... we will be eating these often!! Fast and easy! (and I subbed milk/vinegar for the buttermilk, too).

My husband really liked these. He said it was like the best of both the yeast roll and the biscuit. I liked the ease too. Will definitely be making this again.
