Grandma Sweet Dough Recipe

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
  • flour

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
