This is another recipe I have not tried, but a friend gave it to me and it looks too good to pass up. She says it’s a must at Thanksgiving.


Potato Refrigerator Rolls

1-1/2 cups warm water
1 pkg active dry yeast
2/3 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup lukewarm mashed potatoes (I double this)
7 to 7-1/2 cups flour

In bowl, dissolve yeast in water.  Stir in sugar, salt, shortening,eggs, and potatoes.  Mis in flour with hand until dough is easy to handle.  Turn onto lightly floured board.  Knead until smooth and elastic.  Place grease-side-up in greased bowl.  Cover with cloth and place in refrigerator.  (I do all this the night before.)  About 2 hours before baking, punch dough down, shape dough into rolls, cover and let rise until double, about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.  Makes about 4 dozen medium rolls.  I use cupcake pans and roll three little balls of dough for each roll.  I also have to triple this recipe.  To get them to rise I place the pans on my bed, cover them with waxed paper and a towel, and let them sit with the electric blanket on medium.
