Personal Notes:
We want to keep this recipe alive...so far, Tricie is our best candidate, but others, please try it! But
if you get frustrated, you can buy Sister Schuberts yeast rolls at the grocery store. They are the next best likeness to Bessie's.

Who's Bessie? She worked for Lillian McWilliams, then Jane for much of her life doing cooking, cleaning, babysitting. She was the best--the ultimate in "old-school". Bessie was always ready with a big, strong hug for you.
