Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was "APPLE COUNTRY BED AND BREAKFAST" signature dish. Jerry would make the recipe up to the last rising of the buns wrap and freeze them. He would take the frozen buns out of the freeze before going to bed unwrap and cover with a towel, leaving on counter. In the morning they would be ready for the oven, and our guests had fresh buns from the over! Our family has enjoyed these on Christmas morning for years too as a Jerrys' gift.
