Getting a handle on pastry ingredients and what they do.

Tell me where I'm wrong with the list below and please fill in the missing ones. Also, talk about what each ingredient does in a pastry/baked good. I'm trying to get an intuitive understanding. Biscuit = Low-protein flour, relatively little milk, sugar, salt, baking powder/soda Pancake = Low-protein flour, relatively a lot of milk, eggs, butter/oil, sugar, salt, baking powder/soda Yeast Donut = High-protein flour, moderate amount of milk, egg yolks, butter, sugar, salt, yeast Cake Donut = ? Cookie = ? Pie crust = ? Cake = ? Dinner roll = ? Bread = ? Bagel = ? Add more if you want. Pic related. It's my second try making yeast donuts. Came out pretty good.
