Yummy Dinner Rolls

I received this recipe from a first grade teacher, Joni Taft. I met her at a summer workshop. Instead of adding whole wheat flour to her roll dough, she used Krusteaz wheat and honey pancake mix. Her children liked the rolls much better than the original recipe.

In a separate bowl mix
6 beaten eggs
1/2 c. warm water
2 T. instant yeast
Set aside.

In large mixing bowl or Bosch, mix the following:
2 c. warm mashed potatoes
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. shortening
1 T. salt
3 c. hot water

Add 3 c. Krusteaz wheat and honey pancake mix and blend well.

Add yeast and egg mixture.
Add enough white flour for a nice dough and mix for 5-10 minutes until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.

Let rise until double. (30 minutes)
Punch down and let rise again. (30 minutes)
Form into rolls, put on a greased pan and let rise again.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until done.
