Texas Roadhouse Rolls (Copycat)

  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!



  • 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.
