Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter,
  • sugar, potatoes, eggs, salt and whole wheat flour; beat until
  • smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about
  • 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into thirds.
  • Roll each portion into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle; spread with
  • melted butter. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough
  • to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to
  • seal. Cut each into 12 slices; place cut side down in three greased
  • 13-in. x 9-in. baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about
  • 45 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 27-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5
  • minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, for glaze, combine the cream, sugars and butter in a large
  • saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Remove from
  • the heat; stir in marshmallows until melted. Beat in confectioners'
  • sugar and vanilla. Drizzle over rolls. Yield: 3 dozen.
