* Holiday rolls with oatmeal and molasses This recipe has long been
part of my Thanksgiving tradition. I have long since forgotten its source.

* These rolls are really wonderful, but they need time to rise. start them
as early in the day as possible. Don't even think about using the
quick-rise yeasts.

: Difficulty: easy to moderate.
: Time: several hours preparation, 1 hour baking and cooling.
