I lost this recipe when my mother passed away Feb. '08. She made these every Christmas. She would make many rolls and freeze them until she was ready to bake a batch. Thanks for helping me preserve one of my mother's recipes.mannyman in lexington loved it
This recipe is like one that has been in our family for years. My grandmother, mother, sisters, nieces, and I all make these at Christmas. I have also seen this recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook from the 1960s.lipsantos in Curitiba loved it
