"I have been eating these rolls since I was a kid. I don't know where they started out, but I remember my grandmother making them. They freeze well and taste great split open and toasted."

I made these to take to a Christmas dinner we were invited to. I love potato rolls and these didn't disappoint. They were easy to make and were very soft, fluffy & moist. I recommend oiling your fingers when you start to shape the rolls, as the dough can be a bit sticky. I did use butter in place of the shortening. I put them into cake pans--a dozen in one pan, and a bakers dozen in the other pan. Everyone raved about the rolls, so this one is a keeper!
These make very nice rolls - rave reviews at the party I took them too. Half of them I rolled into balls and put in a 9-inch round pan. The other half I rolled out, cut into circles and then folded in half (these made for great sandwich rolls!). I followed the recipe except that I substituted some of the white flour with whole wheat flour.
Best rolls ever!
These rolls are amazing! Soft and fluffy. The perfect dinner roll. If they aren't fluffy, you have used too much flour. The dough should be a little sticky. I have found my new favorite roll recipe.
You must try these, they are light and melt in your mouth delicious! We have made several bread and bun recipes and these are our favourite rolls. I do all my bread doughs in the breadmeaker, as I do these with success every time. Makes them so easy. I have subbed the vegetable shortening our on occasion for butter or vegetable oil. Still makes a beautiful roll. You can't go wrong with these. Challenge your best bun recipe with these!
These were great. Made them for dinner when my daughter came with her boyfriend and between them and my husband they ate almost 1/2 off the batch. Will definitely make again. Softest rolls I have ever made.
So much better than store bought rolls. They were light and fluffy and gone quick.
This is a keeper!! Nice, moist and delicious very easy to make and inexpensive. Totally love them!
