  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3.5-4 cups white flour.
  • 1/4 cup honey + 1/3 cup butter melted together
  • Instructions


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine the warm water, honey, butter, yeast, and sugar. Allow the mixture to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Using a dough hook, mix 2 cups of the flour, salt, and egg into the yeast mixture.
  • Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky and bounces back.
  • Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  • Place rolls onto baking sheet, or one ball into each muffin tin (should make 12 rolls). Brush tops with honey and butter mixture.
  • Let rise 25 minutes
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until tops are just golden brown.
  • Brush the tops again with the butter and honey mixture.


*The first time I made this recipe, I used oil, and while they were delicious, they turned out a bit dense. When I used melted butter, they were much fluffier.
**I made a batch of gluten free rolls using Krusteaz Gluten Free Flour. They were a little denser, but they tasted pretty good!
