Mom's (Glutenous) Reach-For-More-Rolls

This is likely one of the only gluten-containing recipe that you will ever see on this blog. BUT my mom made them special for the gluten eaters at our gluten free Thanksgiving this year. Not only that, she has made them every year for Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember and I simply had to write about them. This recipe has been used in the family for years.

There is also dairy and yeast in these. Needless to say that I did not partake ;)

I am so sad that I didn't get a photo, they really are beautiful. 

Mom's (Glutenous) Reach-for-more-Rolls


1-1/2 cups hot water (save some potato water for this)
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup mashed potatoes
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs
2 Pkg. Yeast (she used rapid rise) and test w/thermometer
8 cup flour ( she used Hungarian unbleached high altitude)

Method: 

Stir hot water (potato water into mashed potatoes). Add sugar salt & melted butter; when cool, add eggs & yeast. 

Add flour, make into a dough. Turn out on floured surface, cover to rest 10 min. Knead 7 min. Let rise for 2 hours a in warm place. 

Punch down gently. Let rise again 1 for one hour. Place dough on floured surface smooth dough into circle approximately 1 inch thick make into rolls or cut with cookie cutter (or small glass floured around the rim). 

Let rise on cookie sheets approximately 20-30 min in warm place.

Bake at 350° until golden (about 20 minutes).

These rolls brown quickly due to the sugar and butter so watch and check before the 20 minute baking time.

Any left over dough may be placed in covered bowl - refrigerated to bake later. 

"Also I think I remember Grandma saying you can make the dough and before rising at all put the dough in the refrigerator overnight,  in the morning let warm at room temp start rising in warm place such as the oven with pan of hot water on bottom of oven dough in bowl on rack, let rise 2 hrs starts the process."

While I didn't taste them this time, I have had them many times before and they are heavenly. So, if you are a gluten eater or know a gluten eater, send it on their way! 

Enjoy & thank you Moma ;)
