DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the potato in enough water to leave 5/8 cup potato water; drain and reserve the water.
  • Mash the potato and add the potato water. When lukewarm, add yeast, a pinch of flour and a pinch of sugar; set aside.
  • Scald 7/8 cup milk. Add 1/4 cup butter and melted Crisco. Stir well and pour into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the sugar and salt to the milk mixture. When lukewarm, add beaten egg and stir well.
  • Stir in 2 1/4 cup of the flour. Add yeast mixture and 3 cup flour, or just enough to keep dough from being too sticky.
  • Let rise 2 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk.
  • Meanwhile, simmer together the syrup ingredients: brown sugar, water, and butter.
  • If using nuts, sprinkle them in bottom of 3 cake pans. Divide syrup between the 3 pans and pour over nuts. Set pans aside.
  • Divide dough. Roll out a portion on a lightly floured surface into a 9 x 18-inch rectangle. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon mixed with sugar. Add raisins evenly.
  • Roll up dough from long side; cut in 1-inch pinwheels and place in pan.
  • Roll out other portion of dough and repeat steps.
  • Let rise 2 hours.
  • Bake in a 375 degree pre-heated oven for 30 minutes.
