Since the very first time I visited a Texas Roadhouse restaurant, I’ve been hooked on their rolls.  They’re so warm and soft and delicious, and then they make them even more amazing by serving them with that awesome cinnamon honey butter.  The servers know how much everyone loves them and keep them coming until you can’t eat any more.

I’ve been wanting to attempt making them at home for a long time now, especially since getting my KitchenAid.  The dough hook is there for a reason, right?  So I finally got around to Googling and found a recipe to try.

Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls
  • ¼ C warm (not hot) water
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1 C milk
  • 1½ T butter
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3.5 C flour
  1. Fit stand mixer with a dough hook.
  2. Pour water into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add yeast and allow to dissolve.
  3. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat milk and butter together in microwave until the butter melts. Allow to cool until just warm.
  4. Add sugar, egg, and salt to the butter/milk mixture, then slowly pour into the bowl of the stand mixer.
  5. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until combined. Add the remaining flour and knead with hook for 5 minutes.
  6. Grease a bowl; add dough and turn to coat.
  7. Let dough double in size.
  8. Preheat oven to 350.
  9. Punch dough down and form into roll shapes. Let rise again until double, around 30 minutes.
  10. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Immediately brush with melted butter and serve.

These didn’t last long in our kitchen, as they were delicious.  I was impressed with how well they rose and turned out for the first time, as bread can be a little tricky.  I’d say this is a great recipe to start with, especially if you’re not an experienced bread maker.  I wouldn’t say they were foolproof, because nothing with yeast ever is, but I think they’re pretty close!

  1. I notice you have 2 measurements for yeast, is that correct ? “you have 1). 2 tsp yeast and 2).1 packet active dry yeast” I just wanted to make sure. All I have is active dry yeast, do I need the regular yeast ? please get back to me because I want to try them. Thank you Cheryle

    • Hi Cheryle – Thank you for letting me know about the typo! Yes, it’s one packet of active dry yeast :) Let me know how they turn out for you!

  2. Can you make this recipe without a stand mixer…if so, how? Thanks so much!! =)

  3. YUM. my fav rolls! i need to try these out!

  4. You say to use flour, but is it all purposive flour or self rising?

  5. Hello,

    I made these rolls and they turned out delicious! I have two problems when I made them though. The first problem was they were heavy for a roll. What I mean is that they weren’t as fluffy on the inside as desired, but had much more bread in the center. How do I fix that so they are fluffier and have more air inside? Also, I baked them for the correct time on a darker baking sheet, but the bottoms became really dark. I was forced to cook them on a lower rack because the oven was in use for something else as well. If I use a lighter pan and higher shelf will that help this problem? I don’t like very dark myself so I was a little disappointed by that. Also, to possibly help, would using parchment paper on the pan reduce the brown on the bottom so the roll cooks more evenly on the bottom and top? Please let me know, I am baking these for Thanksgiving for my family because they were so delicious, I would love to perfect them even more! :) Thank you! Kathryn

    • Hi Kathryn –

      I’m glad you tried them! Ours actually were really pretty light – maybe try kneading them a bit less time? And let the dough rest 10-15 minutes after you punch it down before you cut out the rolls. As for the bottoms – I believe I baked mine right in the middle of the oven, but yes, I did use a light baking sheet, so making that change might help :) Let me know how your next attempt comes out!

  6. ? Mine turned out hard and non fluffy at all.. would you know what I did wrong. I plan on trying to make them again but so they actually turn out good this time. :)

    • I’m really not sure, Britny. Common causes for less than perfect results when baking bread can be the water being too hot (kills the yeast) or under- or over-kneading. Also make sure you’re letting the dough rest for 10-15 minutes after punching down and forming your rolls.

  7. how many does this make

  8. How long do you let them rise? Any advice on you do this?

    • Jenny I usually let the dough rise for a couple of hours when I say “let it double”. And then after I shape them, I let them rise for another hour or so. Hope that helps!

  9. I can’t wait to try these! Have you happened to come across a recipe for the cinnamon butter they use too?!?!

    • I’ve read a few, Stephanie, but haven’t tried any yet. I’ll be sure to post when I have a chance to play around with one, though! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  10. I am making this recipe now and the dough is rising. Should it be sticky at this point? Or do I need to add more flour?

    • Hi Trsh – I would say add more flour, yes. it should be wet from coating with oil, but not sticky to the touch, no.

  11. […] I’ll also sprinkle it with a tiny bit of cinnamon and brown sugar.  I also love it on my homemade rolls, and even spread on a baked […]
