So our Italy cruise is in T-minus 3 weeks!

And Ben and I vowed a no-carb rule until then. Except we completely broke that rule in 0.75 seconds after I made these rolls.

We didn’t regret this decision at all.

Instead, we just added more melted butter on top. I mean, that’s the only way to do it, right?

Just remember that these are best served warm.

But don’t worry. They won’t last long enough to get cold!

3 hours20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk (105-110 degrees F)
  • 1 (1/4-ounce) packet active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions:

  1. Combine milk, yeast and honey in a small bowl; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with dough hook attachment, beat the milk mixture, butter, egg, salt and 2 cups flour on medium-low speed until a smooth batter forms, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Gradually add remaining 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until a soft, smooth ball of dough is formed. The dough should feel elastic and slightly tacky to the touch. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for 3 minutes.
  4. Lightly oil a large bowl or coat with nonstick spray; place dough in bowl, turning to coat. Cover with a clean dishtowel and let stand in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Gently deflate dough by punching down. Working on a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 1/2-inch thick rectangle. Fold in half, gently pressing the edges to seal. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough again into a 12×8-inch rectangle; cut into 15 rolls.
  6. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Place rolls onto the prepared baking sheets. Cover with a clean dishtowel and let stand in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size, about 30-45 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 14-16 minutes.
  8. Serve warm, brushed with butter, if desired.

  1. I think you need to add sugar to the dough because we tried it and theres no taste.

  2. No electric stand mixer – just a hand mixer. No dough hook. Can I still do this?

  3. Can you brush melted butter on the rolls after they have rose the second time and then bake?

  4. Tried this tonight but they never rose the second time 🙁 so bizarre because it rose the first time in the bowl? 

  5. Yum- love these rolls!!

    No-carb pacts last just about as long in our house, too 😀

  6. Omg, these look like the answer to all my problems!! Lol! I love baking rolls, but I have the WORST time rolling them into perfect, smooth, round balls. It never occurred to me to cut tjem into squares! I must try these asap!!

  7. Looks like a good recipe to add to my holidays and bbq  menus!

  8. Do you make the honey cinnamon butter ? To me this is the best part of their rolls. Would love to have that recipe.

  9. Shut the front door! Making them today! Can these be frozen? If so, would it be best to do it before or after they are baked? Thanks!

  10. Good thing you’re going carb free before your cruise! The thought of 3 meals a day can easily sabotage a healthy lifestyle. But fortunately, most cruise ships prepare food that’s simple in taste so you won’t be tempted to indulge. Unless of course you partake in desserts! Have fun!

  11. I totally need to give these a try, they look amazing!

  12. You can’t forget the cinnamon butter to go with them on the side, that’s the best part!
    I used to work there, and that takes the rolls to a totally different level!

  13. We have loved all of your recipes that we’ve tried and this one looks like it could be another one! However, I don’t have a mixer with a dough hook so I’m wondering if you think I could us the “Dough” cycle on my bread maker with this recipe. Thanks for all the good eats!

    • Unfortunately, we haven’t tried it with a bread maker so we can’t answer your question with certainty. If you do decide to give it a try that way, please use your best judgement. I hope it turns out great! Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    • Yes you can! The only thing is that I use the same amount of bread machine yeast instead of active dry. And also put everything in, in the correct order and at room temp. So yummy!
