Pillow-Soft Dilly Rolls

Pillow-Soft Dilly Rolls

I have had this wonderful recipe Pillow-Soft Dilly Rolls for years. I use to make these all the time at work and had many employees come to the kitchen and get them hot right out of the oven.
We served them for Thanksgiving at the place where I worked very year and we made 300! Families came to be with their loved ones and everyone wanted the recipe! You might say I am the Dilly Roll Queen.
My maintenance man would be first in line to get some and said they were the best roll he ever had. What a sweet guy!
He was the one that told me all my food was so good because "I Sprinkled It With Love" before I sent it out to everyone.
He is coming to visit soon and I will have them coming out of the oven just like when we worked together.
If you have not tried these you are in for a treat!
