Personal Notes:
My mother cut this recipe out of the newspaper back when I was in High School and I started making these rolls and now am famous for my rolls. This recipe came from Yazoo County, Mississippi, thus acquiring its name. I love this recipe and have only failed on it once when I used an aluminum mixing bowl at my mothers and stored dough in same bowl. So I deduced you cannot use a metal mixing or storage bowl.
