Texas Roadhouse Rolls

Texas Roadhouse Rolls

If any of you have ever eaten at Texas Roadhouse you know that one of the best parts of going there is the hot rolls with the cinnamon butter.  I found this recipe and it is spot on. Make sure you serve warm and slather with the cinnamon honey butter.  You will think you saw Elvis.

Texas Road House Rolls

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
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.  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.  
To make the rolls look like the ones at Texas Road House, I shaped my rolls by rolling out the dough into a rectangle, about 1/2-inch thick, then I folded the rectangle in half, making it about 1-inch thick. I used  my rolling pin and rolled over the dough, ever so gently, just to seal the two halves together.  I then used a dough scraper and cut the rolls into squares and placed those on my greased baking sheet.  

Cinnamon Honey Butter
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 c. powdered sugar
1/4 c. honey
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Whip the room temperature butter with whisk attachment for 30 seconds.  Add powdered sugar, honey and cinnamon and beat until completely combined and very smooth.  Scrape down sides of bowl and turn up speed and whip for a minute or two or until really light and fluffy.  Yield: about 3/4 cup.  
 This is great on just about anything,  Dave likes it on his hot oatmeal.

    This was an easy dough. I’ve got it rising as we speak. Fingers crossed!

    I’m giving these rolls a second try for Thanksgiving. I honestly think that the reason they were so dense last time is because I used too much flour. Also, after the rolls set a little while, they were much more flavorful. I don’t know why. Anyways, I’ll post with my results from the second batch. 🙂
