2 Tbsp. shortening

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 cup warm mashed potatoes

1 tsp. salt

3 1/4 cups white flour

1 package dry yeast

1/4 cup warm water

Mix the hot milk, shortening, sugar, potatoes, salt and 1/4 cup of flour in a large bowl and let cool to lukewarm.

Stir the yeast into the warm water and let it stand for 5 minutes to dissolve.

Add the dissolved yeast to the first mixture and beat vigorously.

Cover and let rise in a warm place until light.
