I love homemade bread/rolls so I had to try this particular recipe due to the ease of the process. They turned out great with no problems but do agree with many of the other reviewers that it lacks in taste. It needs to be tweaked but not sure how at this point and time.

These were easy and very tasty. I brushed them with melted butter and sprinkled some with coarse sea salt, some with sesame seeds, and some with parmesan. They all came out really well. I think I may try these as cinnamon rolls since they can be made overnight.

I made these on Thanksgiving and it's all my mother-in-law has talked about since! These rolls are amazing! So light & fluffy! I didn't make any changes to the recipe. I will be making them again this weekend for Christmas!
