Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the potatoes, milk, sugar, shortening, egg, lemon juice and peel, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  2. 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 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 16-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter to within 1/2 in. of edges. Combine the sugar, pecans and lemon peel; sprinkle over dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 16 rolls. Place cut side up in two greased 9-in. round baking pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Combine frosting ingredients; spread over warm rolls. Yield: 16 rolls.
