Mix flour, salt and shortening. Add water. Make a smooth ball. Divide this into 4 balls. Roll each out on a floured board to thickness of pie crust.
Sprinkle with pieces of the butter--Grandma used fresh cow butter--and the sugar and nutmeg mix together. Roll up and seal ends. Make 4 rolls like this and place in an iron skillet.
Pierce through each roll with fork in 3 or 4 places. Bake at 400 degrees until brown and crisp.
Meanwhile, mix 1 cup sugar, milk and vanilla. Pour this over browned rolls and return to the oven for 5 minutes.
