Ingredients Needed

For the Rolls:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (can substitute with gluten-free flour)
  • 1 cup warm milk (100°F - 110°F)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the Cinnamon Honey Butter:

  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Step-by-Step Instructions

Preparing the Dough

  1. Activate the Yeast: In a small bowl, combine warm milk and sugar. Stir in the yeast and let it sit for 5-10 minutes until frothy.
  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt, melted butter, and the egg. Pour in the yeast mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the Dough: Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes until it's smooth and elastic.

Dough Rising

  1. First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until doubled in size.
  2. Shaping the Rolls: Punch down the dough to release air. Divide it into 12 equal pieces, shape each piece into a ball, and place them on a greased baking sheet.
  3. Second Rise: Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let them rise again for about 30 minutes.


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Bake the Rolls: Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.

Optional Cinnamon Honey Butter Recipe

  1. Combine Ingredients: In a medium bowl, beat together softened butter, powdered sugar, honey, and ground cinnamon until smooth and creamy.
  2. Serve: Spread the cinnamon honey butter generously on warm rolls.

Serving Suggestions

  • With Soups and Stews: These rolls make the perfect side for hearty soups and stews.
  • Breakfast Delight: Enjoy them warm with a cup of coffee or tea.
  • Holiday Gatherings: Serve them as a delightful addition to your holiday feasts.


  1. Dough Not Rising: Ensure your yeast is fresh and the milk is at the right temperature (100°F - 110°F).
  2. Rolls Too Dense: Make sure to knead the dough sufficiently to develop gluten.
  3. Overbrowning: If your rolls are browning too quickly, cover them with aluminum foil during the last few minutes of baking.
