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.

Not only great for the Holidays….I’ve been making these when we have soup night, spaghetti, roast in the crock pot. It’s such a great recipe for so many dinner recipes!

How To Make Homemade Dinner Rolls

  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 9×13 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.

Tips For Making Homemade Dinner Rolls

  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. Serve rolls with your favorite family dinner. They’re amazing with a salted butter, homemade jam and honey. Enjoy.

  1. 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!

  3. 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!

    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

    These are the BEST rolls ever and I send my heartfelt thank you for sharing such goodness! Great tasting, easy to make and bake. Christmas rolls indeed. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  7. Thanks for the marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you may be a great author.
    I will be sure to bookmark your blog and definitely will
    come back down the road. I want to encourage you to definitely continue your
    great writing, have a nice evening!

    These are the best rolls I have ever had and have ever made. The big test will be when I take it to the family dinner today. My brother is a roll snob. But I’m positive he will agree!

  9. I have adapted the recipe to allow me to eat a version of Stollen or Christmas bread in just a manner for a hour or so. I add cardamon, fruit cake mix and some sugar. Shape into buns on a cookie sheet.

    YUMMY with frosting and a real scale tipper that is worth its weight.
