Texas Roadhouse Rolls and Cinnamon Honey Butter

   The only reason we go to Texas Roadhouse is for their rolls. They are to die for. They are served with a Cinnamon Honey Butter that is so good. I’ve been seeing their copycat recipe all over the internet, so I thought I would give them a try to go along with our yummy dinner we had tonight.
   The verdict….. They were awesome! Soft, and so delicious. Very close to the real thing. They were pretty easy to make and call for very basic ingredients I’m sure you already have on hand. These will now be my ‘go-to’ roll recipe. I’m already planning on making them for Thanksgiving this year! I know everyone is going to love them!
Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Yields 24 large rolls or 48 small rolls
4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
1/2 cup Warm Water
2 cups Whole Milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 Tablespoons Butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup Sugar
7 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Salt
DIRECTIONS:  Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar, in the bowl of a stand mixer. Once yeast has dissolved, add milk, sugar and 2 cups of flour. Beat thoroughly on medium speed. Let stand until foamy (about 2 minutes). Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
Add in another 5 cups of flour, slowly, to form a soft dough. *NOTE* Do not use more than 7 cups of flour total. The dough will be very soft and somewhat sticky, you may think it needs more flour, but it does not.
Knead dough on a floured surface, until it is smooth and satiny. ( I kneaded mine in my stand mixer with the dough hooks, for about 4 minutes) If you knead it with your hands, you will need to grease up your hands with some cooking spray, to help the dough from not sticking to your hands.

Once kneaded, place into a large, greased bowl. Place dough inside, and turn over to grease top. *NOTE* Again, dough will be sticky so you may need to grease your hands to handle while putting dough in the bowl to let rise. Cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.

Once dough has risen, remove from bowl and place onto a lightly floured surface. Lightly flour a rolling pin, and roll dough out into a large rectangle, that is a 1/2 inch thick. Carefully handling dough, fold the rectangle in half, to form a smaller, 1 inch thick rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, slice dough into 24 large squares or 48 small squares. Place squares onto greased cookie sheets. Cover, and let rise again, until doubled in size.
Bake rolls at 350 for 16-18 minutes, or until lightly golden on top. Remove from oven, and immediately brush tops with butter. Serve rolls with Cinnamon Honey Butter.

    Is it okay to do everything BUT bake the rolls the night before? Have the raw rolls in the fridge overnight? Thanks!!

    Can they be frozen after baking? They are in the oven now! I’m excited, but in my excitement I forgot that my husband and I probably can’t eat 24-48 rolls (although I’m sure we will try).

    Anonymous- I’ve never tried freezing them, but I would imagine they would be fine to freeze. Let me know how they turn out if you do. Hope you love them as much as we do :)

    I have made these rolls so much! Everyone loves them and I love that they make so much. Still trying to get them all the same size, though. Can’t seem to ever do that:)

      Kelly, I never have, but I’d imagine you could freeze these just fine before baking. Let them thaw and rise before baking.
