Introduction: Texas Roadhouse Rolls With Cinnamon Butter

Ingredients for Rolls:
2 tsp active dry yeast
¼ cup warm water
1 cups milk
¼ cup sugar + 1 tsp
3-4 cups flour
1.5 Tbsp. melted butter
1 egg
1 tsp salt

Ingredients for Cinnamon Butter:
1 stick of butter
cinnamon, vanilla, and powdered sugar to taste

Step 1: Start the Dough

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand until frothy. 

Combine yeast mixture, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter (about the consistency of pancake batter). Beat thoroughly

Add melted butter, eggs and salt.  Beat well

Step 2: Finish the Dough

Add enough flour to form a soft dough

Knead dough until smooth or use a mixer with the hook attachment for about 4-5 min

Rub the dough with a thin layer of oil

Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled in size

Punch down

Step 3: Form the Rolls

Cut dough into individual portions

Let rest 10 minutes

Shape dough into desired forms (I have included a video of how I learned years ago when I worked at a pizza place, but do whatever works for you)

Place on greased or lined baking sheets

Let rise until doubled

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes

Step 4: Baste With Butter

As soon as the rolls come out of the oven baste with butter

And there you have it, delicious rolls similar to Texas Roadhouse's

Step 5: Cinnamon Butter

For the cinnamon butter combine one softened stick of butter with approximately 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon powdered sugar, and 2 Tablespoons honey. Adjust the measurements as needed to get the sweetness level you would like.
