My mom has been using this dough recipe since I was 3 or 4 years old. I believe it came from a friend of hers from church who's name was Audrey Doherty. This recipe NEVER fails! You can adjust this to be a sweeter dough or a more savory dough by adding more or less sugar/salt. Recently I have started experimenting with adding different herbs for different flavors. Last night I added 1 tsp of garlic powder and 1 tsp of italian seasoning and we had them with spaghetti and Kittencal's meatballs :D Also, as you will see the recipe as posted calls for shortening, but most of the time I use butter instead. I think it makes them fluffier.
