Sweet Potato Rolls
Ingredients: ~These are some of our favorite rolls!
- 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1-1/2 cups water
- 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
In a large saucepan, bring potatoes and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid; cool liquid to 110° to 115°. Mash potatoes; set aside 1 cup to cool to 110°-115° (save remaining potatoes for another use).
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in reserved potato liquid; let stand for 5 minutes. Add reserved mashed potatoes, butter, honey, oil, eggs, salt and 1-1/2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down and turn onto a floured surface; divide into 30 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Place 10 balls each in three greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
Charissa said awhile ago, “Once we were playing, probably like the day after yesterday, and….”
A few months ago, Charissa was cutting the peel off of a banana and said, “I wonder how they get the bananas in these things!”
Noah asked Daddy, “Daddy, can I go outside if I come back in?”
After Daddy thought about it, he said, “Well, if you come back in!”
