Potato Rolls

I made this on Sunday while the Larsens and Mom and Dad were here. They were delicious (if I do say so myself. Try 'em out. Easy peasy.

2 eggs
1 T yeast
1/2 c shortening
1 c. mashed potatoes (I used my new food storage potato pearls)
1 c. scalded milk
1/2 c. sugar
flour - enough to make a stiff dough (I used about 2 3/4 c.)

Mix everything in your mixer/Bosch/KitchenAid. Cover with cloth and let rise once. Roll out on a floured board and cut in rounds. Brush with butter and fold over. Put in pans (sprayed with Pam) and let rise. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes, until golden brown. Yum-O!
