Yeast Rolls

Yeast Rolls

There is nothing quite like the smell of freshly baked bread, and if you add some cinnamon into the mix, oh my! This issue celebrates breads – from those fluffy yeast rolls you remember grandma making for Sunday dinners, to the light and fluffy biscuits that are amazing slathered with butter and jelly. And, let’s not forget those ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls that fill the house with the scents of cinnamon and nutmeg. I can smell them already, can you?
