Today I am remembering my Grandmother in post – so as I mentioned earlier she was an amazing baker and quilter – and I am sharing her sweet dough recipe.
Grandma Sweet Dough Recipe :
- 1 C sugar
- 1/2 C shortening (Crisco)
- 2 Eggs
- 1/2 C Milk
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients except Flour together. Add flour to mix as needed until you have a smooth dough. Makes 2 pie crust.
This dough is used to make cinnamon rolls, yeast donuts, soft dinner rolls, braided loafs, Belgian liege waffles, and so much more. Lisa
