Grandma’s Country Kitchen

BASIC SWEET DOUGH

2 Fleischmann Dry Yeast

1 Tablespoon sugar

1 Cup warm water

1 Cup milk, scalded

6 Tablespoons shortening, butter, or margarine

1/2 Cup sugar

1 Teaspoon salt

7 Cups flour

3 Eggs, beaten

Dissolve yeast and one tablespoon sugar in warm water. Add shortening, sugar, and salt to hot milk. Cool. Add two cups flour to make batter. Add yeast and eggs. Beat well. Add remaining flour to make soft dough; knead. Place in greased bowl. Cover, set in warm place. Let rise until double, about two hours. Punch down and shape as desired.

This dough can be used for a tea ring, or buns or coffee cake.

Tea Ring 350 degrees for 30 minutes

Buns/Dinner Rolls 425 degrees for 20 minutes

Coffee Cake 375 degrees for 40 minutes

I am disappointed that I do not have Grandma’s homemade butter recipe. A slice of her butter on warm rolls were always so delicious.

Hope your day is full of blessings!
