This easy Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls recipe smeared with Cinnamon Honey Butter is just like the restaurant's, and is melt-in-your-mouth delicious!
In an electric mixer bowl, dissolve yeast in the warm water with the teaspoon of sugar. With the dough hook attached, mix in the milk, remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, and enough flour to make a medium batter.
Mix thoroughly. Allow standing until light and foamy. About 8-10 minutes. Add 3 tablespoons melted butter, eggs, and salt. Beat well.
Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and allow it to rest for about 10 minutes.
While the dough is resting, prepare a large bowl by spraying it with cooking spray. Knead dough until it is smooth and satiny.
Place into a prepared bowl and turn over, coating with oil. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and set to rise in a warm area until it doubles in size. About 1-1 1/2 hours.
Punch dough down. On a lightly floured surface, and with a lightly floured rolling pin, flatten dough into a rectangle until it is a 1/2-inch thick.
Fold the rectangle in half the short way so that it is about 1-inch thick, and lightly roll together to seal the sides together. Allow resting for 10 minutes.
With a dough scraper, cut into rolls and place them on a greased baking sheet. Cover with a damp towel and allow to rise in a warm area for about an hour more.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake rolls for 10-15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Brush top of the rolls with the additional melted butter.
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the butter for about 30 seconds until lightly whipped.
Add sugar, honey, and cinnamon and beat until smooth and combine, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
Continue beating on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
Serve with warm rolls.
