This is a homemade roll recipe from my sister's mother-in-law. I make these for every holiday or special meal and my family wouldn't have it any other way! They are the best served with the honey butter.

  • Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water in a bowl. Let stand until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes. Stir yeast mixture and salt into oat mixture. Beat flour, 1 cup at a time, into oat mixture until dough is soft. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.

  • Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with a damp towel; let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  • Punch dough down and form into rolls; arrange on baking sheets. Let rise again until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bake rolls in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Beat butter, honey, and cinnamon together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Serve honey butter with rolls.

I halved the recipe. The rolls I ended up with are really good but I had to adjust the recipe to make it work. I used a stand mixer. So I proofed my yeast in the bowl and added the oatmeal mixture ( which required over half an hour to cool enough to not kill the yeast ) Just reading the recipe I knew there was too much sugar for our tastes so I reduced that to 1/2 cup for half the recipe. After adding all the flour the dough was still far too wet and I lost track of how much more I had to add. The final result was worth it yielding 15 generous size rolls with just the right degree of sweetness. Read More
