"These rolls are JUST like the ones the cafeteria ladies make in the school lunch rooms! My 8 year old daughter loves the cafeteria rolls and said my recipe was even better! You can't mess these up! They are super easy and everyone will want the recipe! We eat the leftovers for breakfast or put cheese and turkey in warmed rolls for a quick lunch!" — MOMMY2THREEANGELS

I have been searching for the perfect roll recipe, this is it! Just follow the recipe and you can't go wrong. I could not believe how light this dough was and the rolls turned out GREAT. Thanks for the recipe.
I made the full recipe and while the dough rose beautifully and the rolls looked very good they had absolutely no taste whatsoever. I was really hoping for somthing a little better. I'll stick with the "best rolls ever" also found on this site. Thanks for sharing though.
Delicious!! My new roll recipe. I, too, halved the ingredients, but used two pks of the yeast. I've been trying other roll recipes, but this one is "it". Thank you.
Very easy. I followed the recipe to a "t". Very light and fluffy. Tasty with melted honey butter on them.Mix your honey and butter together. Pop into the micro for about 10 seconds. Pour over the rolls. Yum, Yum, Yum!!!
Wonderful! Just like school...don't be stingy with the time for kneading, it's so important to get that texture right. Fab flavor! Making them again today.
These were good and easy. I used 1/2 wheat flour and ended up not using all the dry/flour mixture, maybe a 1/2 cup or so was left. Oh and I didn't roll them out. It was just easier for me to pull chunks off and roll them into balls.
These rolls were delicious - just what I was looking for. I served these right from the oven at dinner, and they were the best part of the meal. I made half a batch (about 24 rolls) and they were all gone the next day - the kids wanted to take them to school for lunch. Thanks for the recipe, MOMMY2THREEANGELS, I'll be making these again and again and probably during the holidays too. Update: I like to scale the recipe down to 15 servings and make the dough in my bread machine. I've replaced up to 1/3 of the flour with ww flour. I don't make these as often as my kids request because I usually eat too many (the big reason why I never make a full batch). Enjoy!
a little sticky but good! next time I will just cut them into squares and bake then in a cake pan. really soft and moist.
