everyone in the family and a large family we have loved these rolls for Mama Byrd lived to 99 and 6 months.Every Sunday we would go to the farm to see her down at Hornbeak, Tn. and she would have some made and her house would smell like the rolls. the rolls where so sweet. I don't know if it was because the longer she kept the batter in the refrigerator or what but they tasted sweet and we enjoyed them so much. I plan to try to make them like her soon.
