Sweet Rolls With Honey Butter


Anyone who knows me decently well knows about my love affair with my bread machine.  Seriously y'all, I went through 150 lbs. of flour in one year.  ONE YEAR!  

I'm obsessed with taking every yeast recipe I love and using the bread machine for making the dough.  It makes me feel like an accomplished baker when in all actuality the bread machine does the majority of the work for me.

There is only one word to explain these rolls.  And this butter.  Wow.  That is it, wow.

This is a copycat recipe of Texas Roadhouse rolls, also known as the best rolls you will ever eat. For real.  If you try them, let me know in the comments how much you loved them!

Sweet Rolls With Honey Butter

Roll Ingredients
¼ cup lukewarm water
1 cup lukewarm milk
1 large egg, room temperature
3 tablespoons melted butter, room temperature
¼ cup sugar
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic salt
2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
¼ cup melted butter for basting rolls

Cinnamon Honey Butter Ingredients
1 stick butter, softened
¼ cup powdered sugar
¼ cup honey
1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions
In a bread machine pan, add the water, milk, egg and butter.  Add in the sugar, flour and garlic salt. Add the yeast on top.  Secure pan in machine, close the lid and set on dough cycle. Press start.
When cycle is complete, remove dough from pan and place on a floured work surface.  With a rolling pin, roll out dough in a rectangle to approx. ½ inch in thickness.  Using a pizza cutter, divide into 18 square pieces.  Place each piece 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets.  Cover with a clean kitchen towel and allow to double in size.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees. When rolls have risen, place on middle rack of oven.  Bake 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Remove from oven and immediately brush with melted butter.  Trust me, serve them warm!

To make the honey butter, whisk all ingredients together.
