Mmmm Good Sweet Potato Rolls

“The secret is roasting the sweet potatoes - not boiling them. Roasting at 425 degrees F carmelizes the natural sugars & makes these rolls Mmmmmm good. The 1/4 cup white mashed potato ensures a great rise. Roast the sweet potatoes the pm before so they will be cool to handle. Adding flour until a workable soft somewhat sticky dough is achieved. I oil my hands when handling it. Time doesn't include roasting sweet taters.”
