Makes 1 dough portion

This dough does double-duty as Caramel-Glazed Monkey Bread or Chocolate Rolls. It's a cinch to mix together and keeps beautifully in the fridge up to 3 days.


How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together first 3 ingredients in a 1-cup glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.

Step 2

Step 3

To make ahead: Prepare recipe as directed. Cover and chill up to 72 hours. Use as directed in Caramel-Glazed Monkey Bread or Chocolate Rolls.

Do not use shortening people! It's loaded with trans fats, on of the WORST foods you can eat. I cook to avoid these poisons, so why would I waste my time baking with them? Anyone out there used this with butter?
