Directions

In a measuring cup combine warm water and yeast; stir to dissolve. Set Aside. In a saucepan, scald Milk; add Sugar, Salt, Cinnamon, and Butter. Stir until Butter is melted. Pour Milk mixture over the mashed Sweet Potatos in a large mixing bowl. Add lemon juice to the mixing bowl and beat mixture until smooth. Cool to lukewarm, then add egg and yeast mixture; blend well. Stir in two C of the flour and beat at medium speed of an electric hand-held mixer for about 3 minutes. Add enough additional flour to make a stiff, barely sticky, dough. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in a buttered bowl. turn dough to butter top; cover and let rise until double in bulk. Punch down and knead once more, then divide into 2 to 3 loaves and divide each loaf into individual rolls (number of rolls dependent on size of rolls you choose to make from each loaf). Place rolls into a greased baking pan, cover, and let rise until doubled in bulk. Bake rolls at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes (or less if you have made your rolls small). Brush tops of rolls with butter (or even better, honey butter) while still hot.
