  • 3/4 cup warm water about 115 degrees F
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup creamy mashed potatoes without seasonings
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 eggs room. temperature
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter


  • In a medium bowl, combine the water, yeast, and 1/2 teaspoon of granulated sugar. Stir and set aside to proof.
  • Microwave the butter until almost melted.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the hook attachment, add the remaining 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, flour, creamy mashed potatoes, salt, eggs, and butter. Turn the mixer on low and mix until combined.
  • Slowly add in the proofed yeast mixture and increase the mixer speed to medium. Mix until a smooth dough forms and it no longer sticks to the walls of the bowl.
