  • Reviews

  • “I made these for a dinner party.I didn’t have “shortening” and used butter instead.These rolls were heavenly!!!I served them with garlic olive oil and herbs so we could dip them.It was my first time making rolls (or any bread-type for the matter) and these were so simple!I will be making these again VERY soon!!!”

  • “These are super easy to put together when time is short. They raise into light airy rolls & can take a meal of leftovers a step higher–to planned overs!”

  • “Loved these!They look like muffins but are really wonderful, fluffy dinner rolls.These will be on our table often.”

  • “Very easy rolls, and very yummy!! So much better than store bought rolls!!”

  • “Wow. These rolls were great and had great texture. Soft not chewy and only took me an hour and 40 min from start to finish. It would have been quicker, but I wanted to bake them in an 8×8 pan, so I had to roll out 12 balls which was a sticky mess so I had to pull apart and flour each one so next time I’ll just add enough flour to the dough until it’s no longer sticky before the first rise. That’ll make it a lot easier and a lot less messy. Anyways, my first rise, I let rise 30 min on a warm oven and after I rolled the balls, I let them rise 20 min in a 140 degree oven. They were so pretty after I buttered them and came out perfectly. Some family members ate 3 rolls. I wanted another but was too full lol. Also, I added 1/4 cup sugar total and 3 TBSP butter in place of shortening.*UPDATE*
    These rolls are delicious and are my go-to rolls from now on. I had another one this morning for breakfast and I could really taste the flavor and appreciate the texture of these soft, buttery (thanks to my addition) rolls. Its a keeper for sure! I personally think adding a 1/4 cup of flour or more to the dough and rolling the dough in balls and placing them close together in a pan gives it a much prettier appearance and they’ll actually look like rolls ;)”

  • “I have to admit that I was skeptical of these easy rolls but I was proven wrong…they are easy AND really tasty. They make a GREAT sub for regular yeast rolls. Instead of shortening, I used butter. I also increased the sugar to 4 tablespoons and I think next time I will add even more because I really like a sweeter dinner roll. I LOVE that these can be made in one bowl AND that I can have a homemade roll with supper on a weeknight. I also like that this batch makes 12 rolls, my regular dinner roll recipe makes at least twice that and sometimes that leads to waste. Thanks!”

  • “Great rolls.Still trying to figure out why they stuck to my pan even though I sprayed it with Pam.Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing the recipe!”

  • “These worked beautifully.Followed pumacreek and used whole wheat flour (2c) and 1/4c wheat germ.Also had no shortening so used olive oil.So simple and no kneading!”

  • “I have now made this twice and it is awesome…The second time I added some Italian herbs to the recipe and they popped out great… I added about 2tsp of herbs and 1tsp of garlic powder..Great!”

  • “GREAT, and just in time for turkey day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the recipe, will be making it all the time.It has been requested twice by the family already!I added 2 Tbsp honey to the mix since we like our dinner rolls a little sweeter.It’s a great addition.”

  • “I’ve been making these for a few months now (I’m a caterer).They have been great.But I just tried making them with King Arthur’s bread flour and that made them “over the top”.WOW!”

  • “These are So good!Light and fluffy, perfect with Anything!I’ve made these with both Shortening and butter and I love them both ways!You just can NOT go wrong with this wonderful recipe!Thanks for posting!I will use this recipe again and again :)”

  • “This is the most versatile recipe there is.I use it for pizza dough, focaccia, bread bowls, etc.It is easy and I don’t have to wait as long as with the bread machine.Thank you Miss Annie!”

  • “These rolls are quick and easy!It really only took me 1 1/2 hours from start to finish.The texture was very light, but the flavor was a little bland.Maybe I’ll sub milk for the water next time and see what happens.Thank you for sharing this recipe!”

  • “These rolls are exactly what I was looking for quick and easy! They turned out wonderful and tasted great, like what one of the other reviewers said “better then store bought rolls”, well I agree!! Thanks Miss Annie….”

  • “I liked these! I don’t give 5 stars unless I’ll crave them, but I liked that it cut like an hour off of the time to make and I could actually possibly do it after getting off work.I traded out some regular flour for wheat flour–no other substitutions.”

  • “I bumped up the sugar to 1/4 cup and used 1/4 cup butter in place of the shortening, but they are so simple and yummy! And my hubby loves them for sandwiches. LOVE IT!”

  • “Ok, these turned out much fluffier and airier than any rolls I’ve kneaded till I can knead no more, so I think I’m done with kneading! 🙂 I used 20 g of fresh yeast, and vegetable oil instead of shortening. A wonderful recipe, thank you for sharing!”

  • “I really liked this recipe because it makes it possible to make and get dinner rolls on the table in less than 2 hours.Also, I really like them.My husband thought they were bland.Next time I’ll add a little salt and sprinkle parmesan on top before baking.Thanks!”

  • “I only gave it four stars, because I thought they were more like bisquits.My hubby loved them.They are really good, but not what I call dinner rolls.They are really fast, but don’t know if they should have raised more.I let them raise about 35 min. plus heated up the oven to 200, then turned it off and put them in, with the door open to get them to rise.I will make themagain as they were fast and taste good, and the Hubby liked them.”
