Recipe by Dine & Dish
My aunt made these rolls for a post New Year's Eve get together and they were to die for. Delicious! I made them after getting the recipe for her and they are incredibly easy as well. A great recipe for a first time bread maker or and experienced pro! I haven't tried this in the bread machine dough cycle yet, but if you have a large capacity machine, I don't see why it wouldn't work! Enjoy :)

Wonderful recipe. Added 1/3 c powdered milk and used butter instead of shortening. Made the dough the night before and baked the rolls the next morning. It took 2-3 hours for dough to rise once it was removed from the refrigerator. Rolls baked up light and fluffy and tasted great. Reminded me of what my grandmother used to make!
