  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 7x11 inch baking pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together flour and salt. Cut shortening in thoroughly with a pastry blender until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in water and press dough together with your hands. Roll out pastry into a large rectangle. Spread the butter evenly over the pastry, then sprinkle on 1/4 cup sugar and nutmeg. Roll up the dough jelly roll style and pinch to seal. Cut into 12 even slices. Place the rolls in the prepared pan.
  3. In a small saucepan, heat milk, 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla until mixture begins to bubble. Pour milk mixture over rolls.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until brown, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Good basic start, which means that one can "customize". Use brown sugar and evaporated milk; instead of milk and white sugar this makes a caramel sauce. Umm! Use a raisins, pecans or granola ...

No taste what-so-ever.
