1
Disolve dry yeast in 1 & 1/2 cups lukewarm water. Blend mashed potatoes, margarine, eggs, salt, and sugar. Add flour and mix thoroughly. Add yeast water to this mixture. Place in a large covered bowl and refrigerate for several hours. It will rise some in the refri. Three hours before dinner, take as much dough as you need and roll it out 1/2" thick. Cut with a glass dipped in flour and arrange side by side in a slightly greased baking dish. Butter tops lightly. Allow to stand on open counter for 3 hours to rise. (not near heat) Bake at 450 degrees for aproximately 10 minutes. Note: This roll recipe is marvelous for parties, as the dough can be prepared several days in advance, as long as it is covered in the refrigerator. I use a cling wrap to cover with.....Enjoy this little sweetie....
