Arabele Noble's Potato Rolls (Those wonderful Friday rolls)

This is the recipe my mom used. (I use a Bosch mixer)

2 cups milk
2 cups potato water (with a little mashed potato in it)
2 teaspoon salt
1 cube of butter
1 cup sugar

Add all ingredients together, heat until butter is melted.
When the mixture is cool, add enough flour to make a thin batter.
Then add 6 beaten eggs.
2 Tablespoons yeast (3 if you are in a hurry).
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.

Then add enough flour to make dough just right (about 9 1/4 c. total?)
Let rise till double.  Roll out about 3/8 inch thick.  Cut into circles. Brush with melted butter and mark center fold line with a knife but be careful not to cut through. Fold and seal edge with a fork.  Place in 11x17 cookie sheet 9 rows of 4 works.  Makes 7 dozen rolls.

Heat oven to 400 then turn down to 375 and bake for 15 minutes.
(Try 350 for 20 minutes)  Brush with butter after baking.
