I made these in the KA, kneaded for about 10 minutes, let the dough rise for about an hour, punched down and deflated the dough. From that point, I followed the rest of the recipe. The texture is light, the rolls are tender, they have just a hint of sweetness, and they cooked perfectly at 15 minutes. Great dinner rolls, but will make good slider buns or a bun for a breakfast sausage patty. I might try an egg wash the next time rather than brushing them with butter. Thanks, Beth, this is a 5-star recipe, we loved it!

Although easy to make, they seemed day old right out of the oven. They weren't the 'soft' rolls I was looking for or expected from such a highly rated recipe.

Seriously easy and fast! They came out perfectly. :) I never use my bread machine because it has never turned out a single decent loaf of bread. I wanted some rolls in a hurry and it wasn't going to be life or death if the recipe didn't work. I used Bronze Chief High Gluten Chemical Free flour just to see what would happen and the result was perfect! Definitely a go-to recipe.

Made these last night. Used the breadmaker dough setting. The dough was very wet and sticky, had to add a lot more bread flour to keep from sticking to the sides. Once I punched it down and removed from the pan it was still very sticky and hard to handle and I had a tough time separating into the pieces. All that being said, the rolls are great, everyone here loved them and I will be making them again. If not for the stickiness issue (and that was probably my fault some way), they are a 5 for sure because of the ease in making them and the great texture and taste. *****Updated**** made them again and they are perfect - figured it was user error last time. We are in love with the flavor and texture. My rating is a definite 5+++

These are GREAT, we rate these a 10! This is the first time I have made rolls at home and I will be making them again. We had always bought premade frozen rolls, but not after finding this recipe. It is very simple to make and it uses ingredients already on hand.

A definite 5 star. Have tried several other receipts and this one is by far the best one. Love, love, yum, yum!

I made these for Christmas dinner with my family. They were awesome! So easy. I was able to concentrate on other items I was making while my bread machine did the work. I actually made 2 batches. There weren't any leftovers. Which disappointed my kids.
