PALM SCHOOL ROLLS (SALLYE)

I clipped this recipe from the Austin American Statesman about 30 years ago. Palm Elementary School was one of the first schools in the city of Austin. It has been closed down for many years. But this roll recipe is still excellent.

I have copied it exactly as it was written in the early 70's. Obviously mixing the dough could be done a little more efficiently now with new techniques such as dough hooks or pulsing food processors.
