One potato sweet potato

Delicious sweet potato rolls. I just might end up loving baking yet.

1 package active dry yeast
4 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 cups sweet potato puree
1/2 cup warm water
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
4-5 cups all-purpose flour

Dissolve yeast, warm water, and 1 tablespoon sugar in your mixing bowl and let stand at least 5 minutes. Add remaining sugar, sweet potato puree, butter, salt, and slightly beaten eggs and mix well. Gradually mix in 4 cups of flour. Turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead 2 to 3 minutes, adding just enough of remaining flour to prevent the dough from being too sticky. Shape into a ball, place in an oiled bowl, turning it to coat the surface. Cover and let rise about 1 hour or longer. Punch down, and allow dough to rest for 2 minutes. Divide into 16 to 20 balls (or less if you'd like sandwich sized rolls) and place on a greased cookie sheet or in a 9x13 inch pan. Allow to rise until doubled, around an hour. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 to 20 minutes.

Serve warm, preferably with more butter. And welcome to heaven.
