The Dinner Roll....

How can anyone have Thanksgiving dinner without the "dinner roll"....dripping with butter of course. This has to be the most decadent recipe...but it is so easy and so good. I have made these for years and every time, they are better than I can remember. After IS Thanksgiving so put your calorie counter away and enjoy the bountiful table we are blessed to present.

I found this recipe somewhere.....but fail to recall where. If I have copied your recipe...just accept the compliment and know your talent had to be shared.

You are so right Bill. Dinner when I was growing up always included a homemade roll in my mother's home. Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
