2 pkg. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water (105-115 degrees)
1/2 c. lukewarm milk

1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
3/4 c. unseasoned lukewarm mashed potatoes
4 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. raisins
1 c. currents
Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk, potatoes, sugar, salt,
butter, eggs, cinnamon, raisins, currents, and 2 1/2 c. flour.
Beat until smooth. Add remaining flour to form soft dough.

apart. With scissors, snip a cross on the top of each. Cover and
let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.

minutes or until golden brown. When cool, frost tops with quick
