"I made the apple rolls; please let Lucy know they have been a big hit with my husband and two sons. They all said they like these better than apple dumplings! I made them 3 times in a row, I made them with white sugar the first time, but then changed to brown sugar the next 2 times for the syrup." - Shirley Spicher
