How to Make My Daughter's Favorite Rolls


  1. In a bowl of a stand mixer, using the paddle, combine yeast and warm water. Add a pinch of sugar. Stir. Let it bubble for 5 minutes. Add honey. On low speed, add the butter, salt and eggs. Slowly add the flour cup-by-cup until it is fully incorporated and the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Add more flour if it is sticky. Empty onto a lightly flour counter and knead 2 or 3 times just to make a smooth ball. Clean your mixing bowl and spray with a little Pam. Dump your dough back in and cover with a towel or I use saran wrap. Let rise for about 30 minutes until double in a warm place.Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. When double in size, portion dough in 24 even pieces. Using your hand like a cup roll each piece on counter in a circular motion until a round roll is formed and it has a little dimple on the underside. Place on a greased cookie sheet or I put mine in two 12-inch cast iron skillets. brush with melted butter. Let rise for about 20 minutes and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Brush with more butter and sprinkle with a little salt if you like.
