Ingredients for the Rolls:
1 packet of active dry yeast
¼ cup warm water
½ cup milk
½ cup buttermilk
¼ cup white sugar
1 large egg
A dash of salt
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
For the Cinnamon Honey Butter:
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Directions to Bake the Texas-Style Rolls:
Dissolve the yeast in warm water in a bowl, letting it sit to activate.
Warm the milk and buttermilk in a microwave, don’t worry if the buttermilk curdles slightly.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter into the warm milk mixture.
In your mixer, blend the milk mix, activated yeast, sugar, salt, and a cup of flour until smooth.
Mix in the egg thoroughly.
Gradually incorporate the remaining flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Knead the dough lightly, form into a ball, and place in a greased bowl to rise for an hour, covered.
Roll out the risen dough on a floured surface to about half an inch thick.
Cut into 12 rectangles, fold to shape the rolls, and allow to proof on a lined tray for 20 minutes.
Preheat your oven to a hot 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake the rolls for 12-15 minutes until they sport a golden hue.
Optional: Brush the baked rolls with melted butter for a glossy finish.
Preparing the Cinnamon Honey Butter:
Whip together all the butter ingredients until you achieve a smooth, creamy consistency.
Serve these warm, inviting rolls with a dollop of the spiced butter and watch them disappear from the table. This recipe is a surefire way to bring the comfort and flavor of a Texas Roadhouse experience right into your home kitchen. Enjoy the baking and the blissful moments that follow with every bite!
