My husband makes great homemade yeast rolls, but if time is short, these are quick and delicious! From start to finish, it takes about 2 hours 15 minutes total (1 1/2 of that is in the bread machine and 15 minutes for baking). This recipe is from Recipezaar and it's become a standard in my household.
**I usually only bake off 12 rolls in a round pie or cake and then freeze the other 12 in a disposable pie pan. Just take out of freezer and thaw completely, let rise and then bake.
