  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted and divided
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast (2 packets)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm milk 110ºF-115ºF
  • 1/4 cup honey plus more for drizzling
  • 3 1/2 - 4 cups all-purpose flour divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. 
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, combine the yeast, warm milk and honey. Stir with a spoon. 
  • Let mixture rest for 3 minutes, or until yeast becomes foamy.
  • Add 3 tablespoons butter and 3 1/2 cups flour to the stand mixer and mix on low until smooth. 
  • Add enough of the remaining 1/2 cup flour to form a soft dough (start with 1/4 cup). 
  • Add salt and knead on medium for about 3 minutes. 
  • The dough will be slightly sticky. 
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a ball. Divide the dough into 12 pieces. 
  • Form them into balls by flipping the dough over and pulling the edges together to the bottom. Place the balls, pinched side down, in the prepared baking pan. 
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown and baked through. If tops begin to brown too quickly, tent the rolls with foil. 
  • Remove the rolls from the oven and brush the tops with the remaining butter. 
  • Serve with extra butter, honey, and sea salt, if desired!


To Handmix

  • Add yeast, warm milk and honey to a large bowl. 
  • Once the yeast blooms, about 3 minutes, stir in 3 tablespoons butter, 3 1/2 cups flour, and salt. 
  • Mix with a spoon until well combined. Add more flour, if necessary. The dough should be sticky.
  • Turn the dough out onto the floured countertop and knead for 3-5 minutes, until the dough is slightly sticky. 
  • Proceed with instructions above.
