We had the chance to taste this recipe when we made it here at Rhodes.  Wow!  It really tasted great!  I was really surprised!

Not only will your family and friends love these rolls, they will love the symbolism that goes along with them as well.

My wife and I plan on making these for easter and using them to teach the kids about easter and its wonderful significance.

We make these every Easter. They are delicious and a good way to teach/remind people of the reason we celebrate Resurrection Sunday. The instructions are perfect, although it takes us a little longer during the prep time. Generally 20 minutes for one person to make 12 rolls.
