Make Ahead Yeast Rolls

2 pkg. yeast
1 ¼ cup warm water – divided 105-113 degrees
4 ½ to 5 cups flour – divided
3 large eggs – lightly beaten
½ cup shortening melted
½ cup sugar
2 tsp. salt

Combine yeast and ¼ cup warm water in 2 cups liquid measuring cup – let stand 5 minutes. Combine yeast mixture to remaining 1 cup water. 2 cups flour, eggs and next three ingredients in large bowl – beat with wooden spoon for two minutes.

Gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough – cover let rise for 1 hour. Punch dough down and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Punch down dough on floured surface and knead 3 – 4 times. Divide dough in half – shape each into 16 – 2” balls.
At this point, you can freeze for up to a week. Take them out the defrost and rise at least 4-6 hrs before baking.

Place on greased 9 inch square pan. Cover, let rise 1 ½ hours. Bake 375 degrees for 12 minutes. Baked rolls freeze well.

Sweet Potato Balls
4 large sweet potatoes
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 cups shredded coconut, sweetened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large marshmallow per potato ball
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake the potatoes until tender, then peel and mash them. Stir in the brown sugar, orange juice, zest and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss the coconut, chopped pecans with the sugar and cinnamon. Press mashed potatoes around each marshmallow, creating a 2 to 3-inch diameter ball. Roll the balls in the coconut mixture. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Watch carefully for the last few minutes of cooking; the expanding marshmallows can cause the potato balls to burst open.

1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 clove garlic squeezed
