INGREDIENTS NEEDED (FULL RECIPE BELOW):

Active dry yeast
Unsalted butter
Honey
Fine sea salt
Egg
All-purpose flour
Salted butter
Powdered sugar
Ground cinnamon

Ingredients needed to make Texas Roadhouse Rolls.

HOW TO MAKE TEXAS ROADHOUSE ROLLS:

  1. Add the milk to a microwave-safe container. Microwave in 15-second intervals until the milk reaches 115-120°F. Do not excess 120°F. Add the yeast and stir. Wait 5 minutes to allow the yeast to bloom.
  2. Add the thinly sliced unsalted butter, honey, and salt to a large bowl. Pour in the milk mixture and whisk to combine. The butter will not melt all the way.
  3. Add the egg and whisk to combine.
  4. Add the flour and stir it together with a wooden spoon or something similar. The dough will be sticky.
  5. Add a generous amount of flour to a clean work surface and place the dough on the flour. Dust the top with flour and knead it for a few minutes by hand until a smooth dough forms. You may need to keep adding flour because the dough is sticky. It’s supposed to be, and why the rolls are so soft.
  6. Spray a large bowl lightly with cooking spray. Add the dough to the bowl and roll it around, so it is coated in the spray. Cover with plastic wrap and place it in a warm, dry place. Allow it to rise to double the size for 60-90 minutes.
  7. Punch down the dough so a lot of the air can escape. On a clean work surface, dust with flour and place the dough on top of the flour. Dust the top lightly and roll it out into a rough rectangle shape, ½ inch thick. Using a pizza cutter, cut off the uneven edges. 
  8. Cut the dough into squares or rectangles. Roll out the dough scrapes and keep cutting and rolling it out until you have 12 ½-inch thick pieces. 
  9. Place the dough squares onto a parchment-lined sheet tray. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the rolls to double in size for 60-90 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown on top. Immediately brush with the melted butter.
  11. While the rolls are baking, make the cinnamon butter. Place the butter, powdered sugar, honey, and cinnamon in a medium-sized bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, whip until smooth.
  12. Allow the rolls to cool slightly and serve warm with the cinnamon butter.

CAN THESE BE MADE SMALLER?

Yes, we made them on the large side like you would find at the restaurant. If you would like them smaller, then just cut them into 24 squares instead of 12.

The cooking time will vary if you do go smaller, so keep your eye on them, and they will be done once the tops are golden brown.

DO I HAVE TO USE THE CINNAMON BUTTER?

No, we wanted to keep these as close to the original as possible, so we included a recipe for serving with that. You can use any of your favorite spreads.

Some other that you can use include: regular butter, jams, jellies, or just served plain. There are just that good.

WHAT TEMPERATURE DOES MY MILK NEED TO BE?

For this recipe, since we are proofing our yeast, we are going to want our milk to be between 115-120 degrees F. You do not want it too hot, or it will kill your yeast nor too cold, or the yeast will not activate.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature, where they will keep for up to 3 days. 

The cinnamon butter can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container where it will keep for up to 7 days.

The rolls can be frozen, placed in a freezer container or bag, and they will keep for up to 3 months.

To defrost, remove from the freezer to the countertop overnight until thawed.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • Easily double this recipe to make more for guests or to keep on hand for later.
  • The cinnamon butter is optional, but it keeps it as close to the original recipe.
  • These can be made smaller, just cut into 24 squares. Baking times may vary.
  • Other spreads can be used, see above for some suggestions.
  • These are best served warm, reheat in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
  • These can be frozen, see above on how to do that.
