Mix together and add to other COOLED ingredients.
Add 2 TB. Instant yeast

4 + more cups gradually

Turn out on floured surface and continue adding flour and kneading until dough is smooth with air bubbles (about 6 mins.) (If using a mixer just gradually add flour to get a soft dough and mix for about 12 minutes total.)

Let rise about 1 hour until double.
Shape in rolls or bread and raise again.

I made these rolls today - we didn't have the potato flakes so I just used one potato, boiled and smashed. They came out delicious!
