This has been my favorite basic white roll recipe for a few years now. The evaporated milk and potato flakes give them a little something extra and people are always asking for the recipe. I usually just form them into balls and make regular dinner rolls, but this time I made them into crescents, just for fun. They are amazing warm from the oven with butter and homemade jam!
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup potato flakes
1 12oz can evaporated milk
1/2 cup oil
1 Tbsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
5 cups of flour (approximately)
-This also makes wonderful cinnamon rolls, just increase the sugar to 3/4 cup.
