When my grandma was alive, she made these amazing rolls! I loved them! And she was a little particular about who she gave her recipes to. Luckily my mom got it and now I have it! It took me about 3 times to finally get the rolls just right!
The first time I tried halving the recipe and forgot that I was halving it and had to go back… The second time they burned a little. Apparently the cook time in Utah is much shorter than when she made them in California. High altitude. And the third time was the charm. Perfect!
I hope these rolls come out right the first time for you! My husband said they were the best rolls in the world! He might be right. 😉
Here’s the recipe:
Grandma’s Secret Roll Recipe
2 pkgs yeast
1 cup quite warm water
1 tsp sugar
2. Combine the following in a separate bowl
2 cups scalded milk
2/3 cup melted shortening, butter, or margarine (I use margarine)
3/4 cup sugar
4 tsp salt
2 eggs beaten
3. Add the second mixture into the yeast mixture and combine.
4. Add 8 cups of flour to the mixture. You can knead it on a floured board or you can use a kitchen mixer. While kneading by hand or in the machine, add 1 – 1/2 cups more flour. Knead until smooth or mix on a medium speed for about 4-5 minutes.
5. Let rise for about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size.
6. Shape the rolls into balls (I usually fit about 24 on a cookie sheet), place them on a greased cookie sheet, and allow them to rise until they double in size again (about 1-2 hours).
7. Bake the rolls at 400 degrees until golden brown. My grandma says 15-20 minutes, but here in Utah I only do 8 or 9 minutes and they’re perfect. So I would set the timer starting at 8 minutes and watch them carefully until they are a nice golden brown.
This recipe makes 4 dozen which is why I usually cut it in half. Enjoy! You are going to love these!
