This recipe for sweet roll dough doesn’t tell us what to do with it once it’s ready to be baked. Shall we take a guess? Break it into smaller roll sized portions and bake? If you have an idea, please share in the comments.

Sweet Roll Dough

2 cakes yeast

1/4 c lukewarm water

1 c milk

1/2 c sugar

1/4 c butter

1 tsp salt

2 eggs, beaten

About 5 cups flour

Soften yeast in lukewarm water. Scald milk – add to butter, sugar and salt in large bowl. Mix and let cool to lukewarm. Add 2 cups of the flour to make thick batter. Add yeast and beaten egg. Beat well for 2 minutes. Add rest of flour to make soft dough. Knead until satiny smooth – almost 10 minutes. Grease sides of bowl well & cover. Let sit in warm place until double. Punch down and shape. (I punch it down twice)

Thanks to site reader jenny fester, we have some more directions: I take little pieces of dough, 4×4, flatten with the palm of my hand then put a spoonful of Apricot filling, then pulling opposite corners pinch together the corners until you have closed in the filling … I use other fillings as well Prune, poppyseed, Sweet cheese , and almond. After they are baked drizzle with a thin glaze.

  1. I take little pieces of dough , 4×4 , flatten with the palm of my hand then put a spoonful of Apricot filling , then pull opposite corners pinch together do the corners till you have closed the filling … I use other fillings as well Prune, poppyseed, Sweet cheese , and almond. After they are baked drizzle with a thin glass , So good .. I also put the zest of 1 lemon in the dough

  2. This type of dough could also be used for cinnamon rolls and pull-apart bread (monkey bread). I love looking through old recipe cards and this site is a wonderful resource. Thanks so much!
