      I had planned to submit this recipe, it's just fantastic! A friend of my mother's gave it to her back in the 1960s, and it quickly became a favorite. Now my three sisters and I make them for our families, and IMO there is no better yeast roll recipe. :)

      Pretty quick and easy; even if I don't think of them till after lunch, they're still ready for dinner.

      My kiddos love them with an orange frosting. Mix thawed, frozen orange juice concentrate (DO NOT use drinkable OJ) with powdered sugar to desired consistency, anywhere a light glaze to a true icing. They do make for a nice breakfast/brunch add this way.
      And do not take them to anyone's house, unless you want to have to do it every time you go! ;)
