Cinnamon Roll/Cabbage Pocket Dough
Why I Love This Recipe
Possibly the best dough ever?
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 cup Crisco
2/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
8 cups flour
1 cup mashed potatoes (can use instant)
1 cup potato water or water
1 cup lukewarm water
2 packages yeast
Mix Crisco, sugar, salt and eggs. Then add mashed potatoes and potato water. Beat again.
Add 4 cups of flour, then add 1 cup lukewarm water in which yeast has been dissolved.
Add 4 more cups of flour, mix and refrigerate overnight.
Notes: I usually use the dough immediately. It's a very soft dough. I mix mine in my mixer with a dough hook. If I knead it by hand, I have to add more flour to keep it from sticking to the counter. I add as little as possible so the dough doesn't get dry.
This recipe also works for rolls and horns.
