  • 1 1/4 pounds potatoes (3 or 4)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 Cup flour, all purpose
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil

  1. Peel and halve potatoes; put in large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to boil; simmer, covered, 20 to 30 minutes, until fork-tender. Drain well; return to saucepan over low heat.
  2. Add butter; mash potatoes well. Stir in flour and salt. Gather mixture into a ball; turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly until smooth. Divide dough in half.
