    D. Todd Miller's Note:

    This recipe originated with an elderly Iredell County, NC lady. In Piedmont North Carolina parlance, these are called "light rolls" or "light bread," instead of dinner rolls or biscuits. Delicious by themselves, I especially love to slice these and serve a nice piece of country ham between the halves. A special thanks to my friend Amanda Cole for this recipe!
