Personal Notes:
These are called Fanny Rolls after Fanny, the wonderful cook from St. Mary's Episcopal Girls School in Memphis, where I graduated and my mother, Presh, taught English. These were a special treat for the girls every Friday for lunch. We always went back for seconds. Fanny used to bring us chocolate milk and cookies for break to the Senior den every day. We loved her very much and she called us "her girls".
