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
1 stick butter
2 and 1/2 teaspoons dry active yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
6-1/2 cups flour (divided, 2 cups + 4 1/2 cups)
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.
