The photo is after cooking. Unfortunately, between taking them out of the oven and taking a photo, quite a few had already been "sampled". An unavoidable consequence, it seems, and when planning how many to make, attrition should be taken into account.
Step 1: Step 1 - Make Mashed Potatoes
Step 2: Step 2 - Add Ingredients
In a breadmaker, the main difference is that you need to add the yeast last, and the liquids/liquid-like ingredients first. Make sure that if you do it in a breakmaker you use the "pasta" cycle. You won't be letting this dough rise right now, it rises slowly in the refrigerator overnight instead, producing a very soft texture.
The ingredients to add are:
1. 1/2-1 package of active dry yeast (1.5tsp)
2. 3/4 cup of warm water
3. 1/2-1 cup of mashed potatoes
4. 1/3 cup sugar
5. 1/3 cup butter or crisco
6. 1-2 eggs
7. 3/4 - 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
8. 3-4 cups of flour
Mix together in a bread mixer, or if by hand, let the yeast rise in the water briefly and then knead the ingredients together.
Step 3: Step 3 - Raise and Bake
To make crescent rolls, roll out about half the dough into a circular round. Slice into pieces as if cutting a pizza, and roll from the wide end to the tip. Cook the same way as with casserole rolls.
