Cdq Sweet Dough

Recipe by Mom10

My mother's recipe. CDQ = Can Do Quick. It only needs to rise once. We grew up eating cinnamon rolls made with this. She also recommends it for crescent rolls. In my opinion, breads made with this tend to be dry so it's not my first choice. But it is quick . . .

This recipe appeared on a Gold Medal flour bag in the early '60s. My mother used it to make our Christmas morning breakfast of Cinnamon Pull apart "Monkey" Bread. We've been using this recipe for nearly 45 yrs now and has become a tradition in our family to make on Christmas morning.
