These taste just like the dinner rolls at the Texas Roadhouse Restaurant. They are an awesome dinner roll.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

We love the hint of honey flavor in every bite of these dinner rolls. It's a great recipe for the holidays, but easy enough to prepare when you just have a craving for homemade rolls. They're soft and chewy. A drizzle of the cinnamon butter takes these yeast rolls to next-level deliciousness. For some of the rolls, we just formed the dough into a ball. For others, we used a cookie cutter to cut out the roll. The result is quite tasty however you choose to shape them.
