These remind me of the potato dumplings my Grandma Jecmen used to make. Now that I have a home again, I think I'll try these. :)
Adapted from Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy.
2 teaspoons salt
½ teacup yeast
1 cup butter
Extra butter for greasing pans
Pare potatoes, boil, and mash fine with salt. Put all through a colander. Mix the potatoes and milk, and yeast and flour to mold them well. Then work in butter. When risen, mold them into small cakes, then let them stand in buttered pans, 15 minutes before baking.
