“From Taste of Home. This is one of the very first recipes I tried when learning to make my own bread. I used to bake up huge batches to freeze them and would leave the hot rolls to cool on racks before packaging them up. I would come back later and there would be quite a few rolls mysteriously missing......and three little tummies that were too full for dinner!”
