Baker Pippi followed a Pennsylvanian Dutch Recipe, with some Pippi touches it to it….

The Potato makes them thicker and heartier…

 Here’s the recipe,,,

2 cups milk

1 and 1/4 cup mashed potatoes (no salt, milk, or butter added)

1/2 cup sugar + 1/2 tsp. sugar

6-1/2 cups flour (divided, 2 cups + 4 1/2 cups)

1 egg

1-1/2 tsp. salt

1 can (3 pounds) Crisco® or similar vegetable shortening for frying

Lets make them:

 Scald the milk. In a large mixing bowl, combine the scalded milk with the mashed potatoes. Add 1/2 cup sugar plus the butter. Mix with an electric mixer. If the mixture is still warm, cool it down to room temperature before proceeding with next step. – Dissolve the yeast and 1/2 teaspoon sugar in barely warm water. Add to the potato mixture and mix well. Add 2 cups flour and mix again. Cover with a towel and let rise for 25 minutes.
