Mimi's Rich Sweet Dough

"I can't believe that I haven't posted this with all the bread baking that I do. This is such a rich, soft, nice dough to work with. For excellent eating and keeping quality, keep dough as soft as possible, just so you are able to handle it. This is good for anything that calls for a sweet dough."
