DIRECTIONS

  • Mix sugar in warm water, then dissolve yeast.
  • Pour liquid into bowl of stand mixer with flat beater attached. Add mashed potatoes (don't worry if a few small lumps remain), shortening, salt, eggs and milk, creaming thoroughly.
  • Mix in two cups flour.
  • Change to dough hook and work in as much of remaining flour as possible.
  • Place in greased bowl away from drafts and let rise until double.
  • Punch dough down, then shape into your choice of roll shapes, leaving unused dough in sealed bowl for later use. If I make the full recipe, it makes a very full lasagna pan of rolls. Be sure to grease the pan using butter or margarine; it makes removing the rolls easy and adds flavor to the crust.
  • Let shaped rolls rise for approximately one hour, then bake at 350° until golden brown and lightly browned on the bottom. Timing will depend on size and shape of rolls.
  • Once rolls are baked and removed from oven, brush with melted butter (or unwrap part of a stick of butter or margarine and rub it along the tops of the rolls).
  • Enjoy!
