Southern Butter Rolls
Turned out perfectly. Used warm water as it just makes sense. I also subbed softened butter for the shortening. Brushed the tops with melted butter before baking. Baked at 375 for 15 minutes. Made 15 nice sized rolls.

Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls
This is a fabulous recipe! All I added to the batter was some grated orange peel for added flavour. I used a french vanilla cake mix and next time I'll try spice or lemon for variation. All the mixing and kneading was done in my KitchenAid - so easy. I used a 9x11 and a 9x9 pan and iced them with cream cheese icing flavoured with more grated orange peel. They are delicious! I will use this recipe again and again. Thank you!

Candied Apples II
I've been making a version of this recipe for almost 50 years and my mother used to make 150 at a time for Hallowe'en. The trick is, and it's missing here, is to add a teaspoon of vinegar to the candy at the very end, when it reaches hard crack stage. Don't stir the mixture while it's boiling until it reaches this stage. Then stir in the vinegar and start dipping the apples. This step keeps the candy hard and is crucial to a good candy apple. Also, we use regular corn syrup, not the light AND we did not use any water in our recipe, it doesn't need it. We decorated the apples with cut gumdrops to make faces. Our house was the most popular one in town solely because of our candy apples. After reading my review, I realize my version is quite different. I should just submit my own. Oh well, use my version if you like, it's been tried and true for many, many years. My apologies to those people who don't like changes to a recipe.
