1912 Rolls

They took all afternoon with the various rises and all but the result was an amazing, big, fluffy, buttery roll. If you would like to give it a try:

Since the oven temp was vague, I cross reference with another recipe for Parker House Rolls from my 1924 cookbook, which recommended a 400 deg. oven. Amy found the experiment successful:
