Ingredients
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm fat-free milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1 teaspoon plus ⅓ cup sugar, divided
  • ⅓ cup cold mashed sweet potatoes
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons cold water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add 1 teaspoon sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes, egg yolks, butter, salt, remaining sugar and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 30 balls. Roll each ball into a 10-in. rope; tie each rope into a loose knot. Place 2 in. apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, beat egg whites and cold water; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
