This was an answer to a recipe request in the Star -Telegram sometime in the early 90's. The recipe was in the Parade Magazine published in 1961. The article said the recipe dated from 1880. I thought some of you might be collectors of old historic recipes.

This recipe brings back wonderful childhood memories!! I lost my mother 5 years ago and didn't think to get this recipe from her before it happened. I was thrilled when I finally found this. If you like a bit of a tart sweet taste you will love these rolls! A break from the "sweet roll norm"
