“Aptly named for their featherlight texture, these tender rolls from my Mama-Louise Smart-were a favorite of family and friends alike,” writes Terri Duhon from Bryan, Texas. “They're just as tasty the next day with a slice of cheese on each section of the cloverleaf.”
My family just can't seem to get enough of these fun, cheesy rolls. They have a delightful texture from the cornmeal and are a great switch from traditional dinner rolls. I like to serve them with spaghetti, lasagna and stew.

THANKS to Clancy Strock's article mentioning Milwaukee bakeries in a past Reminisce, I was reminded that I, too, missed those hard-to-find, airy, crispy rolls!
Years ago, I begged family members living in Chicago to try to find the recipe. My sister-in-law sent me a handwritten recipe, and now I can make these rolls for myself.

"I adapted an old family recipe to take advantage of the handy roll mixes that are available these days," explains Dawn Conlan of Woodbridge, Virgina. "These savory crescents are a must at holiday get-togethers and special occasions."
