Mashed Idaho© Potato Cinnamon Ring with Cinnamon Drizzle-Gluten-Free

Ever since childhood, potatoes have been my favorite food.
Makes sense, my Irish roots are truly showing.
I love potatoes in all forms, but especially in quirky spots like inside the filling and dough of cake that is perfect with a dark cup of coffee.

I know the recipe looks a bit daunting, with three different components to make and combine.

It's not. 


Use a leftover boiled potato to create the fragrant sweet filling or take the 15 minutes to boil one fresh.  A quick mash through a sieve and stir in the rest.  The filling is done in 15 minutes. Mashed Idaho Potato Cinnamon Ring by Dr. Jean Layton


The dough comes together just as quickly.
Best of all, once the combination is rolled together, it can be frozen in slices for super simple creation in the future.

This is one of my favorite ways to have a warm pastry on a weekend.  I just pull out the number of slices I want to use the night before and let them thaw and rise overnight in the fridge.
