Foodie Friday!

Standard

I am happy to announce that from today forward Fridays will be dedicated to fun and easy family recipes at Life in the Cleft! After all, food is the common denominator that brings joy to families everywhere. I want to start this new practice off with a great recipe that is relatively easy and extremely versatile. It is a crowd pleaser that will leave the impression that you exerted a great deal more effort than you really did.

Do It all yeast dough

5 cups bread flour

1/2 cup sugar

2 TBSP instant potato flakes

2 TBSP instant yeast

2 tsp salt

Mix dry ingredients well. Add wet ingredients. Allow to rise uncovered for 1 hour. Roll out dough on floured surface. Cut into rolls and allow to rise an additional 30 minutes.Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.

These are some of the most delicate rolls you have ever eaten. They melt in your mouth! But that isn’t the best news.
