Note from Crystal: I asked my sister, Gretchen, to share this recipe as she often posts it in her weekly menu plans and many of you have requested the recipe. It’s a favorite at our house, too!
Recipe from Gretchen
This recipe has been a favorite in our family for many years. We’ve made so many batches of these rolls that I have the recipe memorized. They are so yummy and a hit with everyone who eats them.
My friends are shocked when they learn how easy and FAST they are to whip up. You can use them as dinner rolls or buns depending on the size you shape them.
My very favorite thing about these rolls (other than the fabulous taste!) is that you can freeze them before cooking and then thaw them out to cook on the day you need them. I pretty much always have a bag of these frozen dough rolls in my freezer because we love them that much. In fact, Crystal asked me to post this recipe because they are so often on my weekly menu posts.
If you are frequently finding yourself short on time when making meals, this recipe is for you. We love them best when they are still fresh out of the oven, topped with butter and drizzled with honey. (Or try them with this whipped honey butter!) Yum!
