"Sweet As Dough" Recipe

Yesterday afternoon I decided to pull out my FAVORITE Sweet Dough Bun recipe and make it for either dinner or breakfast (it all depended on if I got it done before dinner-and I didn't). I love making this recipe mainly because it has yeast in it and I love working with yeast. I love making bread, I just don't seem to have enough time. I wonder why??? Anyway, here are some pictures of my experiment.
Mix the dough for 5 minutes. The recipe said to do it
by hand but I used my handy-dandy Kitchen Aide.

This is what the dough looks like after about 2 hours of rising.
Can I tell you, I LOVE the smell of yeasty breads:)

Spread the mixture.

Doesn't that look good???

You think he likes it?

I think so!!

Helping me roll.

Lay them on a "well buttered" pan and let them rise again!
WOW, they look good!! Cooling down for a few minutes so we can indulge!!
I think they are happy!

Thank goodness for leftovers:)

Here is a copy of the recipe.

Sweet Dough Bun Recipe:

Before starting, heat 2 cups of milk (Hotter then luke warm) and add
3tbs of yeast. Set aside for 5 minutes.

Mix together 1/2 cup of sugar; 2 tsp. of salt; 2 eggs; 1/2 cup of soft shortening and 3 cups of flour. Mix well and then add the milk/yeast mixture. Beat well. Then add another 4 1/2 cups of flour. Knead on counter until smooth and elastic - about 5 minutes (I used my kitchen aide with the dough hook).
Place the dough in a large greased bowl (I used olive oil) and cover, till dough is doubled in size. Punch down and let the dough rise again. Roll out dough for cinnamon mixture.

Mixture for Cinnamon Buns:
1 cup of soft margarine
11/2 cups brown sugar
3 Tbs. of cinnamon

Spread on and roll up. Cut into 3/4 to 1" slices. Lay on a well buttered pan; Sprinkle with brown sugar (which I forgot). Let rise.

Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes and ENJOY!!!
