Potato Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls

If you live anywhere in the Mid Atlantic you are more than likely snowed in right now, and have been every weekend for the last month! Since I'm a bit behind on my posts anyway, I thought I'd put up my Mom's delicious Potato Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls on this lovely snow day. Maybe they can be a fun treat for you and yours while stuck inside! If anything getting the oven going will help heat your house up!

Use the Potato Sourdough starter I showed you here.

To make the dough follow the beginning steps I showed in the Sourdough Cheese Rolls. I'll post a refresher below.

In a bowl combine  the following

1/3 c sugar
1 Tbs salt
1 c starter
1/3 c corn oil
1 1/2 c warm water
6 c bread flour
1 tsp (heaping) yeast

Beat it all together with a dough hook attachment on your mixer until it is only sticking to itself. You want a soft and pliant dough that is sticky, but not messy. You made need to add a little more water depending on how your dough looks. Turn the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and let it rise covered with a damp towel in a warm and non drafty area. (The inside of the oven works great!)

Once you have your dough, gently roll it out into a rectangular shape. Take room temperature butter and spread over the entire surface and then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.

 Roll the dough up to form a log and then cut into 1 1/2 inch thick slices. 

Place the rolls flat into a lightly greased baking pan. Let them rise again for another 1-2 hours. They should puff up and fill the pan more. 

Bake at 350 until golden on top. About 25-30 minutes. Enjoy plain or with your favorite icing on top!
