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.... Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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!!) Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

These are the best! They are easy to make and can be timed to be baking while everyone is comming to the table and thus you have piping hot rolls with dinner. Some of my family eat these instead of dessert with coffee. I have also used this dought to make cinnamon rolls. Cut the dough in half and roll each half into a 12"X9" rectangle sprinkle the dough liberally with cinnamon sugar and pecans and raisins if desired Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Roll up as for a jelly roll and cut into 1" pieces using thread works well for this. Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet cover and set on the counter overnight to rise. Whoever gets up to make the coffee pops them into the oven! Bake as directed in the original recipe. Oh it's so good! Read More

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. Read More

I made these rolls last year for my first holiday with the future in-laws. They were a BIG success not one left! Very easy to make and delicious! I brushed mine with melted butter and a sprinkle of garlic powder on top while baking for a little extra flavor. Read More
