Grandma's rolls

November 22, 2012 - 1:38pm -- VonildaBakesBread

This is my grandma's roll recipe:

Mix 2 eggs, 1 C Mashed potatoes, 1 C warm milk. Add 1 cake yeast (2-1/4 tsp?). Add enough flour to make a sponge cover.

THERE are no directions for how much flour. I'm unsure of what a sponge cover looks like.

Rise 2-1/2 hours

Add 2 tsp salt, 1/2 C butter & remaining flour

AGAIN: How much flour? I always tend to add too much. I think I remember what it should feel like, though.

Rise again. (DOUBLE in size, right?)

Shape into rolls, cook at 350 degrees, 20 minutes.
