"I hate it when people give less than 5 stars when they didn't FOLLOW THE RECIPE!!! Mine just came out of the oven and they were perfect!! They are airy, spongy, light, and a little sweet!

Stick to the recipe and you'll get good results!"
"Oh my goodness!!! These are the best rolls I've ever made! I've never been able to make rolls, until now. My husband and I ate every one BEFORE they made it to the dinner table. I did have to make ..." See moresome adjustments, but they came out wonderful! I had to add a little more flour because the dough was too wet and I used margarine instead of shortening because I was out of shortening. They still came out great! I let them rise about an hour, then rolled them in 2 inch balls in a 9x13 pan instead of a muffin tin. They came out kind of square shaped and I just pulled them apart very easily. I am making them again today, and doubling the recipe!! Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe that I will make over and over again!"

"YUM! These were easy to make. I did worry a little about how the dough was so sticky, but I went ahead with the recipe as-is. They turned out great.

Don't let them rise TOO much in the muffin cups as they will rise a good bit in the oven while baking."
