I just found a cookbook that my mother put together for our church when I was 9 or 10 that I had forgotten about! This book is full of recipes from all the old grannies that my mother grew up with, so you know they're good! These women were friends of my grandmother, so I knew many of them as well. Let me tell you, these women can COOK! So, I've decided to post some of the recipes that appeal to me and I think may be something you all would like to try as well.

This is the eighth. I thought this was an interesting twist on cinnamon rolls, and the fact that it doesn't call for yeast was an added bonus. (I hate fussy baking. All that rising and re-rising and waiting...I just don't do it.) My hubby loves cinnamon rolls, so I'll definitely have to try these. Hope you do too! Enjoy!

**This is another recipe from Ruth Evans, who has gone to be with Jesus, and was one of my grandmother's closest friends.**
