A yeast pastry dough is a soft, enriched, leavened bread dough that is used 
to make cinnamon rolls and other bread-like products.  A sweet cookie dough 
is does not need to be leavened, although it often contains baking powder, 
baking soda, or both, and has a high fat and sugar content in proportion to 
the flour.


> Okay, from a non-pastry baker. What is the difference between "yeast
> pastry dough" and "sweet cookie dough"? Sweet cookie dough doesn't
> have yeast? Or pastry dough doesn't have sugar/honey added?
