This is a roll mix you can keep in the fridge to have for last minute baking. These rolls are very light and a bit sweet. Very tasty too!
1 cup mashed potatoes
1 cup sugar
1 cup hot potato water
1 1/2 cup room temperature water
1 pkg. yeast
Mix all the above together well and let stand covered for about five hours. Store in the fridge up to a week.
Beat one egg in a measuring cup and then add enough of the potato/yeast mixture to make one cup. Pour into a bowl and add 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 cup melted butter and two cups of flour. Mix well and then shape into about 8 balls. You may need to add a bit more flour if the dough is a bit soft. Place in a buttered pan and allow to rise about an hour or until double. Bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned. Enjoy!
