Ingredients:  
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 T. dry yeast
2 eggs
1 c. warm mashed potatoes
2/3 c. sugar
2/3 c. shortening
1 1/2 tsp. salt
7 1/2 c. flour

Directions:
Directions:
Mix yeast in water (add a little of the sugar) and let yeast start to work. Add the two eggs (slightly beaten) and the warm mashed potatoes. Stir into this mixture the sugar, shortening and salt. Mix well. Then add enough flour that the dough can be handled. 7 to 7 1/2 cups of flour is usually about right. Dough will be slightly sticky. Knead about 4-5 minutes with a bread hook (or by hand) and then let it rise until double. Roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with round cookie cutter. Take each circle and slightly elongate it, and dip one end of it in melted butter. Fold in half with the top slightly overlapping with bottom. Place on cookie sheet. Let rise until double. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes. This recipe takes about 5 hours from start until time to bake. Also, this recipe doubles nicely. A single recipe makes about 30 rolls.
