Must-Make The Best Yeast Rolls Recipe - Light, airy, and kissed with honey!

Let me tell you why this is The Best Yeast Rolls Recipe…

First, each little yeast roll is kissed with honey. There is honey in the dough and a honey butter glaze over the top.

Second, to balance the light sweetness, these yeast rolls have a generous dose of sea salt to bring out the best flavor.

Third and most important, the dough is sticky, meaning it will rise and bake into delicate pillows of wheaty goodness.

Convinced?

The Best Yeast Rolls Recipe is such a versatile roll recipe. You can shape the dough any way you want and use them as a side dish, or as buns for sliders.

For sliders I like to roll the dough into balls for a perfectly round yeast roll you can cut in half.

For bread basket rolls, I like to tie them in knots as you see above. Just roll a piece of dough into a short rope, cross one end over the other, then push one end through the hole.

And for Easter, I like to make The Best Yeast Rolls Recipe into bunnies!

Simply roll the dough into ovals.

Then poke “eyes” in one end with a chop stick, and use kitchen sheers to snip ears and tail. Fold the tail down to make it round.

Whether you make round rolls, knots, or bunnies, you will soon discover this roll recipe is The Best Yeast Rolls Recipe after all.

It’s one to tuck in your kitchen journal and use for years to come!

    I bet they are the best! They would be perfect for easter dinner! 

  22. Diane D.posted November 11, 2015 at 1:58 pm Reply

    I’d like to try these rolls for Thanksgiving. I don’t have a mixer with a bread hook, so would there be a lot of kneading?

    • Sommerposted November 11, 2015 at 9:02 pm Reply

      Hi Diane! You would need to knead the dough for 5-10 minutes, but it’s a good stress reliever! ;)

  23. Amyposted November 22, 2015 at 10:11 pm Reply

    These are awesome!  LOVE them.  Thank you so much for the recipe.  FYI, I only had skim milk and they turned out great.

  24. Cherieposted December 23, 2015 at 11:25 pm Reply

    Well, the recipe worked right up until 375 on parchment lined baking sheet with honey butter glaze.  My honey got too hot and then the butter and then the parchment and burned up my entire first batch.  So sad.  Turned the oven down, and didn’t glaze until finished….to save the last.  Perhaps a high altitude issue, as I’m over 5900ft?

    Can these be made a day or two in advance? What about freezing them?

    • Sommerposted March 27, 2016 at 10:53 pm Reply

      Hi Justina! You can definitely make the dough early and refrigerate or freeze, but I would definitely bake right before serving. :)
