This is an old family recipe on my husband's side. The family tradition is to dip these rolls in a cinnamon/sugar mixture. Everyone loves them! The prep time does not include the time you need to let them rise. Also the yield my differ depending on your preferred method of shaping your rolls. Although this may seem to have many steps, this recipe is quick and easy. Trust me! These were the first homemade rolls I've ever made. And the last, nothing else I have tried compares.
