Colleen's Potato Crescent Rolls

2 potatoes, peeled
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

In a small saucepan, cover peeled potatoes with water. Bring water to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Let cool and mash. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

Mix in 1 cup mashed potatoes, sugar, shortening, eggs, salt and 3 cups flour. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to 5 days.

Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into rounds. Roll out each round into a 12 inch diameter circle. Brush with lots of butter and cut each circle into 16 wedges. Roll up tightly starting with the large end. Place point side down on lightly greased baking sheets with the ends bent in to form a crescent shape. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serving Size : 1 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Breads And Rolls Sourdough
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 cups white or rye sour dough starter -- (active and sour)
1 1/2 cups water or potato water -- about 105 f
4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/2 cup butter or stick margarine -- melted and cooled
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup unseasoned mashed potatoes -- see below
2 eggs
7 cups all-purpose flour (up to 8 cups) -- or up to 3 cups rye with 5 cups all-purpose
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon wheat gluten -- see below

In a large bowl, mix the flour (or flours) and wheat gluten. Set aside.

Place starter, water, and yeast in bowl of large heavy duty mixer and mix well on low speed. One at a time, add butter, sugar, mashed potatoes and eggs. Mixing to blend well. If dough hooks are available continue with dough hooks. (ALL mixing can be done by hand if desired.)

While mixing, add flour-gluten mixture one cup at a time. Depending on the moisture in the flour and the weather you may not need more than 7 cups. When fully mixed it should still be moist and somewhat sticky but not too wet. Trust your instincts. Knead the dough for about 10 minutes or until it is silky and feels "alive".

Round up in an oiled bowl, cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap. Let rise for an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Shape into two large or three smaller loaves or into a lot of rolls (sorry, never counted). Let rise, covered), 40 minutes.

Bake at 375f 15 minutes for rolls. (Loaves until nicely browned.)
