Buttery Bread Machine Rolls

I served Crockpot Sloppy Joes for Halloween night. I like having dinner that night on a grab-n-go basis so I can munch all night in between Snickers and Kit-Kats.

This rolls were great, looked like store-bought and I think if I hadn't told everyone I made them, I could have passed them off. I made the recipe into 12 hamburger bun size, but they were a little too big, so next time I'll make 18. (Updated - I have decided 16 rolls for this recipe makes the perfect size!)

These buns had an almost croissant-like taste, and they made great Egg & Cheese Sandwiches the next day, also!
