Vinegar Roll

My grandmother made this dessert for my father. It is one of his favorites. I don't really measure things, so I have approximated some measurements. This is a sweet-sour syrup served over a crunchy biscuit-like turnover. It really is better than it sounds. I think it was called a 'Roll' because some people rolled the dough and prepared like cinnamon rolls. I was always served this like a turnover. Either way is fine.
