I know you’re saying rolls, she never makes rolls. There was a time when we lived in Cedar Rapids that I made these rolls a lot. Melody and I went to Bernie’s house twice to learn from Bernie before we mastered the recipe.

2 c. milk
1 C. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. mashed potatoes (fresh)
1/2 C. margarine
1/4 C. lukewarm water
2 pkgs. yeast
3 eggs, beaten
10 C. flour, or more

Scald the milk. Add sugar and salt. Remove from heat. Add potatoes and margarine. In a small bowl, mix lukewarm water and yeast. Make sure the water is just lukewarm when adding yeast. Add yeast mixture and eggs to milk mixture. Gradually add flour until dough is mixed. Place in large greased bowl. Let rise twice. Then ready to make any kind of rolls. Bake at 350º until light brown.

CINNAMON ROLLS: Divide dough; roll into a rectangle, spread melted margarine or butter on dough, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon, roll and slice. Put in a greased 9×13″ pan.
