Yummy Yeast Rolls

I found a really delicious recipe for rolls.

1 egg, room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup mashed potatoes or prepared instant
3/4 cup milk at room temperature
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package dry yeast (1 tablespoon)
3 to 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour, approximately
1/4 cup butter melted.

In a large bowl blend the egg and sugar. Add the potato, milk, softened butter, and salt. Mix together and add the yeast and two cups of flour. Beat well. Gradually add flour 1/2 cup at a time. Work dough into a moist ball until it cleans the sides of the bowl and has lost most of its stickiness. Knead 8 minutes.

Allow to rise until double in volume. Form into desired shape. (Makes 16 crescent rolls, but can be shaped any way you like.) Brush tops with meltd butter. Let rise 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Bake at 350 degress for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown. Brush again with butter. Serve warm. (Roll recipes usually suggest a hotter temperature than I like to use, so I modified this. The original says 400 degrees; you can try that if you want.)
