Do the Mashed Potato Roll

Patricia D Page


My mom (Nanny Darling) handed down this recipe to me. My hubby, children and guests have enjoyed these for years.
The delightful part for cooks with this recipe is that the dough may be made ahead of time, for any occasion you want this special treat of homemade rolls with dinner. The dough can be left in your fridge up to 5 days ! You can substtute sweet potatoes for white and instant for the regular potaoes. Now ladies and gents, how sweet is this ?
