Mama's Yeast Rolls

Mama's Yeast  Rolls created by Baker30

This recipe has been handed down in my family for several generations. I'm not sure which of the ancestors actually originated it, but I know my grandmother used it and made the absolute best rolls in the world. My grandfather wouldn''t eat store bought bread because it wasn't as good as "Mama's" bread.

    We were expecting a lighter roll. These were more like a sweet biscuit. Tasty but not what we were looking for.
