Sweet Rolls from Camarillo, CA

Al Smith


Camarillo is a beautiful little California town about an hour north of LA on US 101. Its growth was stimulated by pilots from LAX moving there in the 1960's. This recipe is from Grandma Nell, my wife's mother. We had these Sweet Rolls countless times when we lived there. Now you can too.
