Old-Fashioned Southern Butter Rolls from Food.com: This is a very old recipe. I've read that butter rolls may have originally come about as a way for Southern cooks to use up biscuit dough scraps. Whatever the history behind this old-timey treat, it's one of my favorite comfort foods. Try adding finely chopped apple to the filling.
For those of you who ever tasted Granny's (Vada's) Butter Rolls - this sounds just like it. I asked mom and she said Granny never wrote it down so this is the closest I've seen. :) Grandmother's Old Fashioned Butter Roll Allrecipes.com
Grandmother’s Old Fashioned Butter Rolls: "If you like butter, you’ll love these simple but delicious butter rolls. They’re baked in a sweet milk sauce. Just the thing for a cold morning." - Made these, they were excellent. Not as firm as cinnamon rolls.
