This is a recipe that an elderly friend from church has prepared for church and family dinners for years. She was kind enough to share her recipe with me and I want to share it you. The dough can be prepared and then allowed to rise when you are ready to bake. She tends to keep this dough in her refrigerator all the time. She is always ready to prepare homemade rolls. They are wonderful and people request them during bake sales. Enjoy!
