I thought for months now about what was the first recipe I would share. It had to be the right one to honor my mom. This was my mother's best recipe and we love it beyond description. Not that we can make it as well! Soft, tender, high and luscious. It is worth the overnight rise, as it must rise slowly to be so light. Grandma Lee would be happy to share it.
There's only one thing difficult about this recipe... being patient enough to let them rise! It's no wonder there's a party every time these rolls make an appearance.
