Someone delivered a plate of these to us when we first moved here and as soon as I tried them I knew I had to have the recipe. They were the best rolls ever. When she told me they were from the ward cookbook I quickly found someone who had the cookbook and have made these ever since!
These are definitely one of my 'trigger foods' and when they're around I just want to eat ALL of them up! So now I bake a batch or two and then freeze them. Then when I want yummy homemade rolls with our dinner I can just pull out a few, let them thaw, and the warm them up in the microwave - they taste just like they came out of the oven - and even better there's only 1 for me to eat because the other hundred are rock solid frozen in the freezer!
