Lisa shares her slightly tweaked recipe for hot, mouth watering dinner rolls! Lisa says, “I made these rolls for Thanksgiving, and people accused me of buying them! They were delicious, and I hope to make them again soon… who says they need to be only made for the holidays?”
2 ½ cups of warm water
½ cup of honey
A pinch of salt
½ cup of butter (softened)+ more for later
1 ½ teaspoons yeast
7+ cups of flour
(This recipe is based off of a Dinner Roll Recipe by iwashyoudry.com, but a bit modified!)
- While I used a stand mixer, my mom made this recipe by hand. So if you don’t have a stand mixer you can still make these delicious rolls, but it will just take a while longer. Both patches tasted yummy, and there was no real difference between the two.
- In a bowl combine warm water, honey, a shake of salt, and active dry yeast. And let sit for a while until yeast starts to get bubbly.
- Add your butter, and start mixing in one cup of flour at a time. Mixing after each addition. The dough shouldn’t be sticky when you poke it. If after seven cups your dough is still really sticky add some more flour, but be careful, you don’t want to add too much.
- Cover your bowl, place it somewhere warm, and allow it to rise. The original recipe said for about an hour, but I gave it one and a half to two hours.
- After waiting, divide the dough into balls, any size you like, I made mine a little bigger (my size allowed for about two dozen). And lay them out on a baking sheet, that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cover these rolls again for an hour or so.
- Place them in the oven at 350 degree, for about twenty to twenty five minutes. Keep your eyes on the oven, you don’t want to burn them, or they’ll be too dry.
- As soon as you take them out, brush the tops of the buns with melted butter. Allow to cool, or enjoy them when they’re warm!
