Fresh baked rolls from the oven with a spread of homemade Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Honey Butter. This is a quick technique to get delicious dinner rolls in less than 2 hours. My first time trying these rolls I was mesmerized! That kind of special attention to detail is what I crave going out to eat. The buttery, soft roll with mouthwateringly succulent honey butter is the perfect accompaniment to any dinner. Making fresh bread just feels so good. Definitely, my favorite thing to bake in the kitchen. This is a perfect beginner’s bread recipe to try your hand at the process, especially if this is your first time!
My first job was at Cinnabon in the mall and I knew I immediately loved playing with the dough. Freshly baked cinnamon rolls have got to be something angels serve in heaven because their magical. Making things with your hands is just magical. Your hands and eyes will start to tell you how well your dough is doing. Does she need more water? Does she need more flour? Does she need more kneading? The dough will tell you when it’s ready to proof. At first mixing flour and water, your dough should always be more wet than dry. As you knead the dough, the flour will absorb more and more water, until a smooth, bouncy, non-tacky dough is formed. It’s an addictingly fun process.
