this is a GREAT sweet dough recipe that my mom made all growing up. It is great for rolls, cinnamon rolls, orange rolls, bread, etc. one trick for shaping the rolls: roll dough into circle about 1/2 thick. use pizza cutter to cut circle into 12 triangles (cut in horizontal, then vertical, then those sections in thirds). circle the dough around your finger until the end and slide it off your finger. :) Good luck. these are great. :)
