Yeast Rolls

Barbara Gabriel


Has been handed down by 3 generations in our family. A failproof recipe for delicious yeast rolls. My Mother in law is better at making them than me. But she cannot make them anymore. So, my husband makes me make them now. They are so good this time of year. Hot rolls with a slice of fresh tomato from our garden. Nothing better.
