 Hot Roll Mix
"A friend who is a home economist gave me the recipe for this mix that can be used to make dinner rolls or cinnamon rolls," notes Barbara Morse of Spirit Lake, Iowa. The buttery dinner rolls make a super accompaniment to any entree, and the sweet cinnamon rolls are perfect with coffee.
