One of my favorite things about eating Sunday dinner at my parents house is the homemade rolls that my dad makes! They seriously melt in your mouth! My parents were kind enough to share this wonderful recipe with me and now im going to share it with you!
What you need:
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 tbs. (or 1 package) active dry yeast
1 cup unseasoned lukewarm mashed potatoes (made from instant is fine)
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp. salt
6 cups flour
Disssovle yeast in warm water in a large bowl. Stir in potatoes, sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, salt, and 3 cups of the flour. Beat until smooth. Mix in remaining flour. Dump onto floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic. Place in bowl and cover. Let it rise in a warm place until double in sixe, 1 to 2 hours.
When ready to use, punch dough down and divide into 3 equal parts. Shape into any type of roll you desire. For crescent rolls, roll one part at a time into a large circle about 1/8 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut into 16 triangles, dip in melted butter, and place in a muffin tin or on a greased cookie sheet. Let rise in a warm place until double in size, 1 to 2 hours. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
