Monkey bread #1

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Butter; no substitute
½ cup Sugar
½ cup Shortening
1 teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs
1 cup Warm mashed potatoes
2 packs Yeast
½ cup Warm potato water
6 cups Unbleached flour
¾ cup Warm milk
Melter butter; no substitute

Cream butter and shortening together until well blended. Add sugar and salt. Blend well. Stir in mashed potatoes. Blend. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well each time. Dissolve yeast in potato water. Stir into butter mixture. Stir in 1 cup flour; beat smooth. Add enough flour, 1 cup at a time, alternately with warm milk to make a stiff dough. Knead until smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl. Grease top of dough. Cover. Let rise until double. Punch dough down. Divide in half and roll eash to ¼ inch thickness. Cut dough into diamond shaped pieces. Dip each piece in melter butter. Arrange in greased 10-inch tube pan or 3-quart mold. Cover and let rise until double. Bake at 400 about 30 minutes. If bread browns too fast, reduce heat to 350 during last half of time. Best served warm. Guests just pull off 1 (or more) buttery diamonds.
