Yep, I'm rollin' in it."

Time got away from you today. You have the main course prepared but want that little something extra to make your mealtime pop.

These little rolls will make everyone come into the kitchen without being called when they are baking. The aroma will flood the entire house with its deliciousness as they bakes.

A lovely part of this part of your meal is that these rolls are a no fuss kind of addition that you can whip up in a hurry. You probably have all of the ingredients right in your pantry. if you are like me, you keep flour in the freezer away from little critters that love to make it their home.

This recipe used no salt. If you wish to have add salt, you can, about 1-2 teaspoons. You could just top with salted butter after they bake if you must have the salt. Our family is on a low sodium diet at present.

Thanks for visiting, AuFait. I am always glad to see you. This is a great little recipe when you are in a hurry and want that aroma to fill your home.

I know about your rain. My sister was texting me most of the day and into the evening. A foot of rain was forecast but I am not sure if she got that much in her area ; we have not Skyped yet today.

I hope all went well for you all.

Sending many Angels your way and hoping all is good with you and yours. pa

Who doesn't love the smell of baking, or freshly baked bread? This looks wonderful, sounds wonderful, and your photos and instructions are great. Thought I had commented on this article before and so I kept passing over it, but today I actually took a look, and was surprised to see I haven't been here before!

Hope you are having a good week Patricia. We were visited by Tropical Storm Bill last night and all day today. Rain and more rain and we are already flooding from all the previous rain of the last month, but I loved it because it kept us much cooler than usual for this time of year. instead of 95-100, it was only 76! Bill hasn't left yet, but he's mostly in Oklahoma now, and likely to spend the night there.

Take care . . .

This is a great recipe to have on hand for those times when a family from church needs help with a meal due to an unexpected emergency. Looking forward to trying it out sometime so I'll be ready with it at one of those times.

These look so delicious! I usually run out of time and end up buying a store bought package. But I definitely will have to try these around the holidays. I can just taste them with a little leftover turkey and cranberry sauce....

Yes dwilliam

You can use butter. Be sure it is semi-soft that when it is added to the hot water it will mix in well.

I hope you can give these a try. My family is already asking when I will be making them again.

Another great recipe. I never use Crisco because of what it is made of. Do you think substituting real butter for the Crisco would work just as well?

I only use ingredients that are natural. No margarine, no artificial sweeteners, no hydrogenated oils, no animal fats, no corn, or corn byproducts, etc..

Even the cornstarch i use must be made from NON GMO corn. (The only one i have found is Rumford Brand cornstarch).

hi drbj

You are so welcome. My Momma used to make yeast rolls and they were so good. We looked forward to our Sunday dinner which was at about 3 in the afternoon as Momma served up the most delicious rolls on the planet. Mine are good but they will never be as good as hers.

Now you have given me a deja vu in return.

Have a lovely weekend. Angels are on the way ps

Yes, dinner rolls make our home smell divine and our tummies sing. And today I had mini slices of toast made from the mini loaves of bread. Yum.

pstraubie, this brings back memories of when my Mom made fresh rolls and bread. We could smell that wonderful aroma as we came down the road riding the bus home from school! Your first picture got me hooked right away ;)

Hi Faith

They really are a surprise. Pretty quick for a yeast roll ---light, tender and a great complement to other foods. They are also pretty tasty the next day toasted and with a dab of jam.

Thanks for visiting. Angels are on the way to you this morning, my Friend...ps

Nothing better than fresh-baked dinner rolls smelling up the whole house, well, except for eating them. Yum!!!

I love your "punny dough" ... so cute.
