Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The aroma, while these rolls are baking, is amazing. It's warm and comforting... kind of reminded me of being in the kitchen with my mom at Thanksgiving. These light and fluffy rolls are super easy to make for your holiday meal. We mixed up some honey butter to put on top and it was delightful.


1 c
warm water
1 pkg
dry active yeast
1 tsp
1/4 c
white sugar
1 large
3 Tbsp
butter - softened
