Are these really like Texas Roadhouse? Not quite... but they are good. Maybe if I had made them not like the pull apart kind? I just read another post that says to add 4 tsp. of wheat gluten and some honey. Maybe next time.
Anyway, although they are not quite like Texas Roadhouse's, they were still very yummy rolls and I would make them again. And the cinnamon honey butter will not disappoint!
TEXAS ROADHOUSE ROLLS - Copycat Recipe
- 4 tsp. active dry yeast
- 1/2 c. warm water
- 2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
- 3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
- 2 whole eggs
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 stick softened butter
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. Add yeast, milk, sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter. Beat thoroughly. Let stand until light and foamy. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well.
Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchen-Aid to knead this for about 4-5 minutes). Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. (I pinched off golf size balls and placed them in a pan for pull apart rolls. They rise a lot, so make them small!!) Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen. Serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.
For the Cinnamon Honey Butter: whisk it all together, w/ mixer or by hand, for 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
