This recipe I got from my grandma and it was her moms. We found out about a year ago she has alzhiemers. She always made these for every holiday and every year at the family reunion. This year she could not make them because she couldn't remember how. I am so thankful that I took the time for her to teach me how to make these. In fact my sister told me that I was going to have to take care of making them now! That and her homemade beef and noodles. The recipe has changed over the years my grandma started using margarine instead of lard. My mom also turned this recipe into cinnamon I will tell you how also

Let dough rise until doubled in size, punch down and let rise again.Punch down again. Pinch off some dough and with a little flour make into rolls place in greased cake pan. Let rise till doubled. Put in 350-400 degree oven. Cook till pale brown. Take a stick of margarine and rub on top of rolls. Place pan on wire racks until cool or serve warm.
  2. Note: My grandma said always use Red Star yeast and Gold Medal flour! She said they work the best.
  3. Ok for cinnamon rolls you due just as you would for the hot rolls. But instead of making into rolls you roll out the dough onto a floured surface. Put some melted margarine on top of the dough. Then sprinkle dough with brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and cut into 2 inch rolls. Place in greased pan and let rise. Then bake at 350 degrees until done. Glaze is powdered sugar and milk. Sometimes i use margarine powdered sugar and milk. Gives the glaze more flavor!
