Recipe Ingredients for Amish Dinner Rolls

2 eggs
1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6 tablespoons butter
1 cup potatoes (mashed, unseasoned)
2 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
3/4 cup water (potato water, if possible)
4 1/4 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

Recipe Directions for Amish Dinner Rolls

  1. Note 1: 1 medium-to-large baking potato will yield 8 ounces of mashed potato

  2. Note 2: Directions call for 15 - 16 rolls I do aprox 32 small rolls.

  3. Note 3: For slightly denser consistancy subst 1 egg + 1 egg yolk

  4. Note 4: Color variation use golden sweet potato or japanese purple sweet potato or ???

  5. "Soak yeast in warm water, then mix everything together and mix well. Let rise till twice in size. Shape rolls, put in pans and let rise. Bake at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes, or until brown."

  6. Manual/Mixer Method: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, and mix until the dough starts to leave the sides of the bowl. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased or floured surface, and knead it for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it's smooth and shiny. Or knead it in a mixer, using the dough hook. Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or rising bucket, turn to coat, cover the container with plastic wrap, and let the dough rise till it's doubled in bulk, about 90 minutes.

  7. Bread Machine Method: Place all the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer (usually, liquids first, yeast last). Program the machine for dough or manual, and press Start. Check the dough about 10 minutes before the end of the final kneading cycle and adjust its consistency as necessary by adding additional water or flour to form a soft, smooth ball. Allow the machine to complete its cycle, then allow the dough to remain in the machine till it's doubled in bulk, perhaps an additional 30 minutes or so.

  8. Shaping: To make stand-alone rolls, divide the dough into 16 equal pieces. If you want to make soft-sided, pull-apart rolls, divide the dough into 15 pieces. This isn't as challenging as it sounds: first, divide the dough into three equal pieces (about 375g, 14 ounces, each). Pinch off one piece, about the size of a racquetball or handball (75g, 2 3/4 ounces), off each of the three pieces, setting the pinched-off pieces aside; then simply divide what's left of the three pieces into four pieces each. Presto! Fifteen balls of dough. Gently roll the dough balls under your cupped fingers till they're nice and round.

  9. Place the 16 dough balls onto a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet or sheets, leaving about 2 inches between them. Or place the 15 dough balls into a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch pan, spacing them evenly in five rolls of three balls each. Cover the pan(s) with a proof cover or lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the rolls to rise for about 2 hours, till they're quite puffy; the rolls in the 9 x 13-inch pan should be touching (or almost touching) one another.

  10. Baking: Bake the rolls in a preheated 350F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, till they're golden brown. Remove them from the oven, carefully turn them out of the pan -- the pull-apart rolls will come out all in one piece -- and brush them with melted butter, if desired. Serve warm or at room temperature. Yield: 15 or 16 rolls
