Refrigerator potato rolls - southern living

Yield: 3 Dozen

Measure Ingredient
1 Active dry yeast; (1/4-oz)
½ cup Lukewarm water (105°to 115°)
1 cup Lukewarm milk (105° to 115°)
1 cup Hot mashed potatoes
⅔ cup Shortening
½ cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Salt
2 larges Eggs
7 cups Up To 7 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

NOTE: You can shape these rolls into balls as we did or as you desire.

Combine yeast and warm water in a small mixing bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

Stir in warm milk.

Beat potatoes and next 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add yeast mixture, beating until blended. Gradually stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (5 to 8 minutes). Place in a well-greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 1hour or until doubled in bulk.

Punch down dough, and brush top with melted butter. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Divide dough into 6 equal portions. Shape each portion into 12 balls; place 2 balls into each greased muffin cup.

Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until almost doubled in bulk.

Bake at 400° for 15 to 20 minutes.

Yield: 3 dozen.

Note: Dough may be chilled up to 3 days before shaping. To freeze rolls, bake 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks. Cover and freeze. Thaw at room temperature; uncover, and bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes.
