1/4 C warm water

1 stick (1/2 Cup) Margarine
1/2 C sugar
3 eggs,beaten
1 C warm water
2 teaspoons salt

Three hours before baking, roll out by dividing dough in 2 portions. Roll each portion on lightly floured surface to rectangle 1/2 inch thick. Spread with softened butter (I melt mine) or margarine. Roll jelly roll style and cut in 1 inch slices. Place slices cut side down in greased muffin cups and on cookie sheets.
