    LutieLu's Note:

    My dad makes this every week for Sunday dinner and we never get tired of it! He usually doubles or triples the recipe so we can eat them through the week too. This recipe also makes amazing scones, just cut into squares, let them rise and then fry in heated oil. They're good! If you don't have instant potatoes you can use 3/4 cup of mashed potatoes and just forget about the other 1/2 cup of water. Time does not include rising time and serving size really depends on how big you make yours.

      These are so good!! I used mashed potatoes instead of instant and shaped into rolls and placed in pans rather then on a cookie sheet and let them rise again before baking. I ended up with 2 dozen rolls with the size I made. They're lighter then air and the taste warm out of the oven with a little butter just melts in your mouth! Delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe I'll definitely be using again! :)

      These worked out well, so well that there were none left, so next time I'll be doubling the recipe.
