Hi Margie
This might be the recipe you are looking for.
· 2 cups all-purpose flour
· 1/2 teaspoon salt
· 1 cup shortening
· 1/2 cup water
· 3/4 cup butter, softened
· 1/4 cup white sugar
· 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
· 2 cups milk
· 2/3 cup white sugar
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
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.
If not I will keep looking.

Martin Luther King was indeed a great person. Thanks for the outgoing link. I never knew he was assassinated in his hotel balcony.
He has been he greatest Social activist though.
Have a great day...:)
