Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1/2 cup lard or shortening
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 packs yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 5 cups flour
Directions

Mix together well the sugar, potatoes, lard, eggs, and salt.

Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup warm water; then add that to the above mixture.

Stir in about 3 cups flour. Add the remaining 2 cups flour while kneading. Knead until the dough is no longer sticky but moist.

Let rise until doubled.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Roll out dough to a 3/4 to 1-inch thickness. Cut into bun shapes with a jar or doughnut cutter (or cloverleaf or crescent-shaped cutter) and pour on greased cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Let them rise until puffy but not doubled (they should not be touching).

Brush with milk. Bake until lightly golden brown, about 12 minutes.
