Edna Ruth Byler’s Potato Dough Baked Goods 
From the More-With-Less Cookbook

This is a very versatile dough that can be used to make dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, sticky buns and more. Makes a large amount. Secret ingredient: mashed potatoes!


3 T yeast in 1 c warm water

Mix in large bowl:
1 qt scalded milk
1 c butter
2 c mashed potatoes
1 c sugar

Let cool to lukewarm, then add 6 c flour. Let stand 20 mins until mixture foams up.

2 eggs
1 T salt
11-12 c flour

On a floured surface, knead for several minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic, then let rise until doubled in size. Punch down and form into Cinnamon Rolls or Dinner Rolls or Sticky Buns! 

For cinnamon rolls: Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut into strips. Brush each strip with melted butter, then sprinkle with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll up and place in greased pans. Let rise a second time, then bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.

For sticky buns: Form dough into 1″ balls. Dip each ball in melted butter, then roll in mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. Place in greased pan with balls of dough touching each other. Let rise a second time, then bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top.
