1 cake fresh yeast
1 cup warm water
mix and set aside
½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup warm mashed potatoes
Mix butter, sugar and potatoes well. Stir in yeast mixture. Set in warm place and let stand two hours.
Then add 1 cup cold water, 1 teaspoon salt and 6 cups flour. Mix well. Add enough flour so dough is stiff. This is a good time to put in the refrigerator to finish the next day.
Let stand two hours more, then knead down, roll as desired. Let stand two more hours then bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
These are delicious! I often double the recipe so we have lots and lots for leftovers. Thank you, Great Grandma Edna for such wonderful rolls and loving hands making them. We miss you! Grandma Edna went to heaven this year at the age of 96.
