Mashed sweet potatoes add a hint of color and flavor to these home-baked dinner rolls. The tempting golden knots have a tender texture as well as a lovely look from a sprinkling of sesame seeds. —Test Kitchen

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add 1 teaspoon sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, egg yolks, butter, salt, remaining sugar and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

  4. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and cold water; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2012

I made these for a large family gathering. Instead of making the dough into twists, I made fifteen rolls out of it. They were beautiful to look at, soft, slightly sweet and delicious. I didn't brush them with the egg whites or use the sesame seeds, but buttered the tops when they came out of the oven. I will definitely make them again and so will members of my family.

I didn't think the sweet potato added much of anything to this bread... the rolls come out pretty but are a bit dry
