When I was in elementary school in a small town in Missouri (also my dad's hometown),any time there was a fundraiser, for any reason, there was usually a bake sale. Everyone in the community loved and made peanut rolls. Sometimes peanut rolls were the only item at the bake sale! I hadn't had these delicious treats in nearly 40 years until I crossed paths with a childhood friend on Facebook, who shared the recipe with me. DELICIOUS!
