My One Hour Buttermilk Dinner Rolls need to be added to your next dinner! Simple, quick, soft and delicious!  Perfect for Holidays and weeknight dinners.
Dinner Rolls

Have you ever wanted to make dinner rolls but didn’t know where to start or how to tackle them?  I’ve got just the recipe for you.  Simple, fail proof rolls that you’ll have on the table in no time.

I’ve been tinkering around with this dinner rolls recipe for months I’ve finally got it how I wanted!  I like quick fix, soft and fluffy.  This is what you’ll get with these babies.  You can either roll them in balls and place them side by side or knot them like I’ve done here.  I’ve done it both ways and both are delicious.  I will say these are best eaten within 2 days.  After the first day, warm them in the microwave for 10 seconds or so.

Dinner RollsTips For Making Homemade Dinner Rolls

*Don’t substitute any ingredients in the recipe.  One of my most asked questions is, Can I use a substitute for the buttermilk.  I would not.

*Don’t rush the “rise time.”  It’s hard to be patient when making rolls, but let the recipe do it’s job.  It will be worth the wait!

*Serve rolls with your favorite family dinner.  They’re amazing with a salted butter, homemade jam and honey.  Enjoy.

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 1 tablespoon slices
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rapid rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. Preheat over to warm, 170 degrees F.
  2. Place butter, buttermilk and water into a heat proof bowl. Microwave until butter is mostly melted and between 115-120 degrees F.
  3. In stand mixer with dough hook attached, place flour, sugar, yeast and salt, mix to combine. With mixer running, slowly add warm milk mixture. Increase speed to medium and let mix for 4-5 minutes, using a rubber spatula to scrape edges of bowl. Transfer dough to a lightly floured countertop. With floured hands press dough to a 1/2 inch thick rectangle, close to 9x13 inches. Cut into 12 equal squares and roll each piece into a long rope shape. Tie into a knot shape and place onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Place into warm oven and turn off heat. Let rise in warm oven for 20 minutes. 

  4. Remove rolls from oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. When preheated, place rolls in oven and bake for 12-14 minutes, until just barely turning golden brown on top. Remove, brush with melted butter and serve. For best results serve warm. Store any remaining rolls in air tight container and gently warm up before re-serving.

    My mom made these for our Christmas Eve dinner tonight. She is in her 50s and a highly experienced cook, but claimed she had a fear of working with yeast. She said in previous years all of her yeast recipes have failed miserably. But tonight she overcame that fear and made delectable, glorious knot rolls. These were DYNAMITE. Thank you for helping my mom face her fear and make the best rolls ever!!!

    I made this and it taste good. but unfortunately it became a bit dry. My dough turned a sticky, too hard to mold. I used buttermilk powder, 3 tablespoon of it for the 2/3 cup of water. Everything else is the same as the recipe. Any Idea what I dis wrong? Thanks!

    Dinner plans fell through and I wanted to pretend I had it all together. I wish I’d seen these last year when you first posted! They came together easily (and quickly!) and were so light…kind of reminded me of Rhodes rolls. We’ll be having these often since I rarely think of rolls before I actually start making dinner ha ha!

    I made these for thanksgiving today and they were a hit! I didn’t knot them, just rolled them into small balls (think I got maybe 22-23 rolls from the batch, forgot to count). I also put them in a pan so they’d have soft, tear-apart edges. Not a single roll was left! Thanks for the delicious, quick recipe!

    Donna says:

    These rules were super easy to make and turned out perfectly the first time! I’ve made them several times now and everyone always raves about them I think they spent hours slaving away in the kitchen
