This recipe came from an old addition (2008) of Southern Living. I have never had good luck with yeast breads, but this recipe is very easy to follow and they turn out great!

So many people do not cook or bake from scratch nowadays, but I still prefer to work from scratch if the recipe isn't too complicated.

Enjoy!
