1 large egg

1. In a large mixing bowl stir together 1 cup of the

the potato flakes. Let stand for 1 minute. Add milk
mixture to dry mixture along with the egg. Beat with
an electric mixer on low to medium speed for 30

high speed for 2 minutes. Using a wooden spoon,

moderately stiff dough that is smooth and elastic.

greased bowl, turning once to grease surface of the

floured surface. Divide the dough in half. cover and
lest rest for 10 minutes. Lightly grease two 8x8x2
inch or 9x9x2 inch baking pans.

dough rise, cover shaped rolls in a pan with oiled
waxed paper, then with plastic wrap, and refrigerate
