Sweet Dough for Rolls
Came across this recipe in one of my Grandmothers old recipe books. It makes one of the softest, yet not sticky doughs I have ever worked with. This is THE ONLY dough I will use for my cinnamon rolls, and fruit rolls.
- Ready In:
- 2 (4 1/2 teaspoon) packages yeast
- 1 1⁄2 cups warm water
- 1 cup lukewarm milk
- 1 cup soft margarine or 1 cup butter
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 1⁄2 cups flour (approx.)
- Soften yeast in water in large bowl.
- Add milk, margerine, eggs and sugar.
- Stir in 1/2 of flour.
- Add salt to second half of flour and stir well.
- Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead till smooth, using flour as needed, but sparingly as dough needs to stay soft.
- Let rise till double in a warm place (I often put my bowl in a sink of hot water if Im in a hurry).
- shape as desired, or makes 18 cinnamon rolls.
- Bake 350 till golden or desired brown-ness.

This is a great recipe! I halved the recipe and still got a dozen large cinnamon rolls. It nearly filled a 9x13 pan. I love that this recipe doesn't require waiting around for long periods of time for dough to double and double again. The hot water trick did the job for me and my rolls were ready in under 2 hours start to finish and ready for breakfast when everyone woke up.Reply
