- Cooking Time: 25/30
- 2 C milk

Bring to Boil:
2 C milk
4 T Shortening
1 t salt
1 C Potato Flakes (I use Potato Buds)
Set off to cool.
Beat well 3 eggs.
In 1/2 C warm water dissolve 2 pkgs of yeast. When mixture has cooled, combine eggs and yeast with milk mixture in large bowl.
Start adding flour until you get a good kneadable dough (about 4 ½ to 6 C)
Knead 10 minutes, let rise 2 hours.
Put dough into 2 – 9 X 13 cake pans and let rise 1 1/2 hours. Take finger and punch holes in dough. (I use my finger joint just up from the knuckle.)
Take 1 pint of whipping cream; add small amount of sugar and fill holes with the cream.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixed.
Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.
This is wonderful. Make for Christmas morning every year. Worth the time and effort and really is not difficult at all!
