This is another recipe that was made by Pauline Young. Again, her recipe was lost but this recipe is similar the one she made. She also used the same recipe and added cocoa over the dough before she rolled it up and made a Chocolate Roll. It was a family favorite. When Mrs. Young made the Butter Roll she used water. This recipe calls for milk so I put both in. It is your choice. This is very sweet but good.
