I posted this on my page in food.com I'm carblover there too! This is one reason for that. LOL This is a simple yeast roll recipe from a dear friend who now lives in Maine. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can lessen the amount of sugar to get a less sweet dinner roll. I like to make them a little bigger and use them for hamburger buns. These make the house smell so good :)
