Recipe by Ridgely
These are great and simple Rolls from Southern Living Magazine. I do not claim to be a baker at all, but if I can make these anyone can and I always get rave reviews. The dough can also be used for yummy cinnamon rolls as well.Update: At one point I changed the recipe to canola oil instead of butter and added half whole wheat. Then a friend of mine made it and she substituted applesauce for the butter and she said it turned out great. I made it tonight with the applesauce and she was spot on!

I made these rolls in my breadmachine, I set it on dough. I had a little to much flour mix inside my machine and it did go over the bread pan but no problem I took it our and shape the rolls and let them rise again and they were the best. My neighbors love them also. Next time I make them I will try it by hand instead in breadmaker even through they did great.
