Prep Time: 1 hour 30 minutes   |   Cook Time: 15 minutes   |   Total Time: 1 hour 45 minutes


1 tablespoon (14.79 ml) water

2 ¼ teaspoon (11.09grams) Yeast

1 cup (244 ml ) milk

6 tablespoons (88.72 grams ) unsalted butter

5-6 tablespoons (73.93 grams ) sugar

1 teaspoon (5 grams ) salt

1 large egg

3 1/2 -3 3/4 cups (437.50 – 468.75 ) All purpose flour

butter unsalted , for brushing over the finished rolls

Cinnamon Honey Butter

2 ounce (56.7 grams ) butter , unsalted and softened

1 1/2 – 2 tablespoon ( 14.79 grams) powdered sugar

2 tablespoon ( 29.57 ml honey

1/2 teaspoon ( 3 grams ) or more cinnamon spice


In a standing mixer combine lukewarm water and yeast. Let it sit until dissolve for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile in a microwave safe medium bowl, combine milk, with the butter pieces, sugar, salt and microwave for about a minute. Stir until everything is melted.

Dump everything into the yeast mixture.

Whisk an egg into the the mixture .
If the mixture is too hot let it cool to a warm mixture to prevent eggs from curdling

Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed. Add about 3 ½ cups of flour and continue mixing dough.

Add in enough additional flour (if needed) to make soft dough. Err on the side  of  caution less flour , rather than more.

Turn dough on lightly floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes or more if you want airy bread.

Place dough in a greased bowl, turning once to coat the dough Cover loosely with a clean cloth and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1 to 2 hours or until doubled.

Punch the dough down.

Roll dough into a rectangle, about 1” thickness. Use any sharp object like knife or pizza cutter to cut dough into squares.

Preheat oven to 350 F°.

Spray cookie sheet pan with oil or butter , then place rolls on oiled pan about ½ – 1” apart. Cover lightly with kitchen towel and let rise for about 30 minutes or until dough is puffy.
Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with remaining melted butter.
Remove from the baking pan and let it cool. I like to eat mine when it is still warm.

Cinnamon Honey Butter

Combine butter, confectioners’ sugar, honey, and cinnamon, in a small bowl. Then mix with a mixer or by hand until blended. Serve with rolls or refrigerate until ready to use.
