    These are the best and easiest rolls ever. I've been making them for several years now. I like to use 2 1/2 cups of wheat flour and 2 cups of white. I've also used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup crisco...to cut down on the trans fat. It can't be any easier than stirring it all in a bowl and sticking it in the fridge. The dough can be left in the fridge for up to a week so you can have fresh warm rolls for dinner every night.  -  02 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    made these with butter instead of shortening, didn't roll them out, just formed balls. turned out good, kind of had the texture of a tea-biscuit, but people really liked them, and the no-kneading is a total bonus  -  16 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    When I want to make this rolls I was thinking why not I made this into a pizza base and I did! Half of the dough I make into rolls and the other half I make into 2 8" pizza base with topping consist of cheese, baked bean, sliced meat loaf and mayonise and it was yummy.  -  26 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
