Recipe by Bonnie G 2

Found this recipe in Taste of Home Holiday Edition and the picture looks so pretty I want to save the recipe. Sounds pretty simple too so think they will be a nice to add to any dinner and nice enough for company. Prep time does not include rising time

Good buns, even better-tasting the next day. HUGE!! Made in my Kitchenaid mixer, very easy and very quick. Thanks . . . Janet
