I'd like to make these rolls, but don't have potato flour. I do have potato flakes. I am sure I can substitute, but should I adjust the amount? Should I try to grind up the flakes a bit? Help!

I would try whizzing the flakes in a clean coffee grinder. Or using a mortar and pestle to finely grind the flakes. Good luck, AJ!

1 cup whole potato flakes = 1/2 cup potato flour. If you grind it as mrslarkin suggested, you should be able to substitute the powder 1:1. http://www.floradawn.com/cooking/2010/06/16/potato-flour-substitute/

If the potato flour is half the amount of the flakes, why not disolve the 2 tbsp of the flakes in the water, heated to hot, then let the mixture cool until it's the right temp for the yeast.

Whoops! That should be 1/2 cup flakes! ;P

I have just substituted flakes for flour and didn't grind them up. They absorb liquid, so you might have to adjust the liquid a bit, but flakes work!
