This is a recipe I got from my Grandma Statom. It's very easy even if you are a beginner in making rolls. Grandma was a cook in a restaurant until she retired. I remember she would fix huge dinners everytime we would go by her house. We used to say we are coming to see you don't cook. We would get there and she would have a huge meal cooked for us like it was nothing. I miss you, Grandma.
