This recipe was yet another I snagged from Pinterest. And no wonder, right? They turned out beautifully and that honey/butter mixture brushed on right before baking absolutely pushes these over the top of mere dinner rolls. Whether you're a roll maker or not, these were easy to make, the aroma in your home is divine and your family will love hot rolls for dinner.
Found on Pastry Affair
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup barely warm water
1/4 cup honey + 1 tablespoon, divided
1 teaspoons salt
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra if necessary
1 tablespoon butter, melted
In a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and let sit for 5 minutes. Add the honey, salt and egg. Stir until blended. Add 3 cups of flour and mix until the dough comes together. If using a standing mixer, knead the dough with the dough attachment for 5-7 minutes, or until elastic. If not, knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until soft and elastic (about 8 minutes), adding more flour to keep the dough from sticking if necessary.
Transfer the kneaded dough to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and a clean kitchen towel. Let the dough rise in a warm area until it doubles in size, about 2 hours.
Punch dough down, divide into 12 equal portions, and shape each portion into a round ball. Place in a pan (or on baking sheets) coated lightly with cooking spray. (I used a buttered pie plate.) Cover with a kitchen towel and let it rise for another 20 minutes. (I let it rise nearly another hour. All kitchens are different.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and 1 tablespoon honey. Brush over the rolls. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
