Potato Rolls

Potato Rolls
by. Marge Shakespeare

  • Scald 3 Cups MILK (in large glass measuring cup covered with saran wrap) in microwave for 6 ½ Minutes

  • Set 2 cubes of cold or frozen BUTTER in mixer and pour hot milk over (this will help milk cool down faster) let cool down for about 45 min to 1 hour.

  • When milk is cooled down – mix:
    ¾ cup warm WATER
    ½ cup SUGAR
    (works best to put into a salad dressing mixer and shake to mix)

  • Let set for at least 5 min

  • In bread mixer add: (don’t mix till most of flour is in or liquid will splash out of bowl)
    6 EGGS (I usually measure this out in glass measuring cup- I’ve been using 1 ½ cups of eggs Usually turns out to be 7 eggs)
    1 scant Tablespoon SALT
    2 Tablespoons POTATO FLOUR
    5-6 Cups BETTER FOR BREAD FLOUR (enough to make dough look same consistency as brownie mix)
    Add YEAST AND SUGAR mixture. Mix for 2-3 Min on #1 Will look similar to vanilla pudding.

  • Cover and let sit for 20 min. Small bubbles will form on surface.

  • Mix down and add about 3 ½ Cups flour ( it won’t look like enough)

  • Beat on #2 for 8 minutes.

  • Let rise with lid on make sure it is in the unlocked position.

  • Let rise till 1 to 2 inches above top of bowl.

**Vinyl gloves a must – stick hands into flour to coat between each roll. Pull and pinch racket ball size of dough pull and stretch into long pieces and tie in a knot.

  • Let rise again.

  • Bake 375 convection for 9 min (about 13 min. in reg. oven) on bottom rack (so bottom of rolls will brown also) for 9 min. Brush with butter as soon as they come out.

Hi, my name is Monica Bracken. Marge Shakespeare is my mother-in-law. I am also related to Gardner's and of course Bracken's. Marge stumbled across this blog on the internet. Then she forward it to me. We are curious. How did you get the recipe? She is honored however. Also, we could be related. Small world.
