  • cup Idahoan® Original Mashed Potatoes, dry

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 1 (.25 ounce) envelope active dry yeast*

  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup warm milk, scalded and cooled to luke warm

  1. Place warm water and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle yeast on top and let sit for 10 minutes.

  2. Sift together flour and salt; mix in potato flakes.

  3. In a mixer bowl, combine yeast mixture, warm milk, butter and egg. Slowly beat in potato-flour mixture, one half cup at a time, until a soft dough is formed. If dough is sticky, add more flour, 2 tablespoons at a time until dough pulls away from sides of bowl and is easy to handle.

  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

  6. Turn out on a lightly floured board and roll 1/2 thick. Cut into 2 inch rounds with a floured biscuit cutter or cut into squares and roll up crescent style.

  7. Place on greased baking sheets and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes.

  8. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve warm.
