Sweet Potato Rolls

I made Sweet Potato Pull-Apart Rolls yesterday from my Better Homes and Gardens: The Complete Guide to Bread Machine Baking cookbook. They are so good and easy! Adding to the flavor is the knowledge that Blaine grew the sweet potato in our garden last summer from plants purchased from a barefoot woman in a long, dark blue dress who runs the Amish store by LaPlata.  I also remember helping him dig up the orange beauties and marveling at the huge orange treasures hidden under the dried vines last fall.  We ate these rolls with a bowl of beef stew.  Here is the recipe:
Sweet Potato Pull-Apart Rolls
¾ cup sweet potato, mashed
½ cup milk
1 egg
2 tablespoons margarine or butter, cut up
2 ½ cups bread flour
½ cup wheat flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon active dry yeast or bread machine yeast
Put the ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed. Select the dough cycle. When the cycle is complete, remove dough and shape into rolls. Let rise another 30 minutes or until nearly double in size. If you like, beat egg white and a tablespoon of water together to brush over the rolls before baking. This makes them shiny. Bake at 375 degrees for about 18 minutes or until lightly browned.
