Scald milk, stir in shortening, sugar and mashed potatoes. Cool to lukewarm. Blend well. Sprinkle yeast on warm water and stir until yeast is dissolved. Add to milk mixture. Stir in beaten eggs and vanilla. Sift 6-½ cups with baking powder and salt. Add gradually to yeast mixture, mixing well after each addition. Add another ½ cup flour if needed to make a soft dough.
