Julie Johnson's Rolls
These are the best rolls! She cooks them for our ward for all of our activities and everyone begs for the recipe. The key to the recipe is the shaping so I made a video of how to do it! Disclaimer: Please remember that I just had triplets about 4 weeks before the video and I hadn't gotten to the stage where I was putting make up on! Another reason I love this recipe is that it is basically fool-proof! Because you mix all of the ingredients but the flour in the blender you only have to knead the dough for about a minute or so! It is so easy and so good! Also, they make really good cinnamon rolls! They just make good everything...but make sure you shape them correctly!
From my RS Pres, Julie Johnson
7 c. flour (bread flour works best but AP will work too)
2 1/2 c. water, hot
2 T quick-rise active dry yeast
1/3 c. sugar
2 t. salt
1 cube margarine
Measure flour into a large bowl (If you lose count, start with all new flour so the air pockets don't destroy the flour measurements). Put remaining ingredients into a blender jar and push stir until well blended. Pour over flour and stir with a wooden spoon (I use my Kitchen Aid) until flour is mixed in and the sides are cleaned. Cover with a warm wet towel and let rise for 1 hour. Shape into rolls and place on greased baking pans. Let rise until double, about 20 to 30 minutes. Cover with towel again. Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until done. Note: Dough will be sticky so use shortening on your hands to keep from sticking.
