Alyne was my great-grandmother.  She was a great cook.  I spent many hours in her kitchen as a child watching her cook, washing her MANY sets of interesting salt and pepper shakers for fun and drinking “coffee” with her friends.

Her rolls are our family tradition.  My mom is great at them.  I “help.”  You can save time on a holiday and let them rise the second time in the refrigerator overnight.

Here is the recipe.
