Ice Box Potato Rolls

1 package dry yeast 1/2 cup lukewarm water 1 cup milk 2/3 cup shortening 1/2
cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup mashed potatoes Flour 2 eggs,
Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Scald milk and add shortening, sugar, salt
and mashed potatoes. When cooled to lukewarm, add the dissolved yeast. Mix
thoroughly and add just enough flour to make a thin batter. Cover and set in
a warm place until double in bulk.
Add eggs and stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough (dough will leave
sides of bowl when stirred). Turn out on a slightly floured board and knead
thoroughly until smooth and pliable. Place in a greased bowl. Cover with a
cloth and place in the refrigerator.
When ready to make rolls, pinch off dough, shape, place on greased baking
sheet and let rise until doubled in bulk (from 1 1/2 to 2 hours).
Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. Dough may be placed in greased
muffin tins. Grease rolls on top and allow to rise. In baking, just as they
begin to brown, brush with butter. Dough will keep about 1 week in
Makes about 60 rolls.
