"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

There are no directions to this dough recipe.

*Oleo was white margarine that came accompanied by a packet of dark yellow liquid that could be mixed into the white margarine to make it look more like butter if that was desired. Our grandmother used it without the color in her bread baking.

Personal Notes:
I am adding this incomplete recipe because I found this pictured scrap of paper with the ingredients written by our paternal grandmother, Da. She visited us yearly from Columbus, OH, and baked every Saturday morning as she had done when raising her 3 children. She would rise early to get her dough mixed and proofing because she wanted to have the treats ready for the family Saturday lunch when everyone ate together because our parents always went out for dinner that evening. I remember seeing a huge bowl of covered dough growing over the pilot light of the gas stove. The outcome was pans of cinnamon rolls with raisins inside and cinnamon crumb topping, pans of the bread dough covered with cinnamon crumb topping, and pans of the bread dough covered with sliced season fruit (apples or peaches) and cinnamon crumb topping. The flat breads were called "Dutchy". The house smelled amazing by lunchtime. You can imagine how quickly these sweet breads disappeared with 6 "growing" children and no oversight in the pantry when we would pass through and help ourselves throughout the afternoon. I think she was shocked by how quickly we could consume the rolls and Dutchy. She used to say, "Please, just leave some for your father's breakfast on Sunday."
