  1. Instructions Place sugar, butter, salt, and potato in a mixing bowl. Add scalded milk and mix well. When lukewarm, add dissolved yeast cake and 4 cups of flour. Lightly beat into a batter. Add the well-beaten eggs and enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn onto a molding board that is well-dusted with flour. Knead until smooth and elastic to the touch. Return to mixing bowl and let rise. When full of bubbles, cut down. When light again, shape 1/2 of the dough into small balls. Place close together in a greased pan. Brush over with a syrup made of 1 tablespoon cream and 1 of sugar boiled together one minute. Currants or raisins may also be added or 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Bake at 400 degrees from 20-25 minutes. .
