These rolls are quick and easy. My family always loves them!

I made in a 9" pie tin with an 8" round bottom, so the rolls ended up a little flared but were still cooked evenly. Will make again for sure.

Hi Sarah, these rolls are meant to have a soft texture on the inside, and a bit of a crust on the top. However, if you'd like them to be even softer, we'd suggest baking for a less amount of time. There's the possibility that your oven may be running a little hot, which could cause the top to get drier than usual. Hope this helps!

I made these once and my family always asks for them at every holiday now. They are easy to make and delicious. My only complaint is they are not soft on the tops. How can I get them to be softer instead of crusty? I usually bake them for just 15 minutes as the 20-22 minutes in the recipe makes them WAY to hard on the tops.

Easy, texture is nice. The only critique I have is that there isn't as much of a yeast flavor as I like, and the baking time is waaaaay too long. 10-15 minutes would render a softer roll.

It disappeared 5 minutes after taking it out of the oven. My grandkids loved it.

This is very easy and gets great reviews for homemade rolls!. I make mine ahead and freeze for special dinners like Thanksgiving. They are still the best!

Reminescent of the rolls I had in grade school. Yeasty, and taste like a roll not like an egg roll. Try these and you won't ever eat any other kind again.

This is the easiest recipe for rolls I have found and I make them all the time.
