Not worth the effort. Kind of dense/heavy.

I followed the recipe exactly and found these terribly lacking flavor. I actually made my usual standby dinner rolls the morning of Thanksgiving because I was too embarrassed to take these to our dinner. I think brioche rolls might just be something that are best with the full-calorie version.

I agree w/ a previous reviewer that these seemed awfully dense - just didn't seem to rise as much as I expected. Maybe my yeast milk wasn't warm enough or was too warm since I don't have a candy thermometer. However, the flavor was great and I got rave reviews from everyone when I took them to Thanksgiving. Now I have to make them again for Christmas. A crowd pleaser.

I don't have a stand mixer, so I "kneaded" by hand in a bowl with a silicone spatula. They were light, and truly delicious anyway. I made 24 for 5 people, thinking I'd have leftovers. Instead people were fighting over them :). They did not get dark brown like in the picture, more golden, but delicious and beautiful, and totally worth the effort. They stuck to the muffin tins a bit--grease well!

I found this recipe to be easy to follow and the end product very close to what I was expecting - just make sure you remember to leave enough time for the dough to chill!

I made these and they turned out perfectly and everyone ate them up! I'm not sure why a previous review thought they were too dense.

These rolls were a two day project, but I managed to make them in spite of a broken arm, using my Kitchen Aid mixer. They took longer to rise than the recipe said, but turned out light and flavorful. I made them in advance and froze them, then thawed and heated. They were great.
