An elderly friend of mine has been making these yummy rolls since the early 1960's. All four of her sons LOVE these. She makes them in big batches and freezes them in packages of four. They are wonderful warmed with a big glass of milk for breakfast or as an indulgent snack! I felt very blessed to be asked into her lovely kitchen and be shown how to make these delectable rolls. Enjoy!
