Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls

Texas Roadhouse Copycat Rolls with Cinnamon Butter - so soft they melt in your mouth!! { }

Hey everyone! Weakness 2,576… CARBS. Cant live with them, cant live without them. Am I right?! I am such a sucker for a nice, warm, dinner roll. If you are too, then today’s post is for you!

I remember my first time to Texas Roadhouse. I made a big stink about the ridiculous wait and begged my family to go next door to the empty Chili’s. To no avail, we waited… and waited. I was confident that my food was going to be horrible (I needed to justify my fit). Well, you can imagine my disappointment as I sunk my teeth into one of their mouth watering rolls. I knew I had been wrong and that the wait was, indeed, worth it. I hate being wrong. 😉

When we saw this Copycat Texas Roadhouse Rolls recipe, we knew we just HAD to try it. These rolls are thick and soft and oh-so-delicious! If you are experienced with yeast, these are easy peasy. If this is your first time working with yeast, this is a great recipe to start with. Take a look….

  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 cup whole milk scaleded then cooled to lukewarm
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon



  1. You will need an electric mixer with the dough hook attachment to start off this recipe. To your bowl, add the yeast, water, milk, sugar, 2 tablespoons of butter, egg, and salt and mix until combined. Slowly add your flour and knead on medium-low speed until the dough starts to pull away from the side. Stop and let the dough sit in the mixer for 3-5 minutes. On medium low speed, knead the dough for another 5 minutes. Dough should be soft and smooth. If dough is too sticky, add flour, 1 tablespoon at a time.

  2. Spray a bowl with cooking spray and move dough to bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rise until double in size. Should be about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Lightly flour a work surface and roll the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle. Cut dough into 2-inch squares. Move squares to a baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap. Let rolls rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  4. Bake at 350 for approx 15 minutes, or until golden. Take the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter and brush your finished roll.

Cinnamon Butter

  1. With your whisk attachment, in an electric mixer, beat the butter for about 30 seconds, until pale in color. Add powdered sugar, honey, and cinnamon. Beat 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Serve immediately with your rolls. May be stored in fridge for up to 5 days.

Don’t forget the Cinnamon Butter – I think I need to have this on hand at all times!

My favorite thing about these rolls, other than the fact that we don’t have to wait at a restaurant for an hour to eat them, is their size. They are huge! And buttery! And… I could go on. How about you try them for yourself and you’ll see what I’m screaming about. LOL!

  • DIFFICULTY: Simple -Moderate
  • HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 12-15 (makes 2 dozen rolls)
  • ANY CHANGES MADE: We wanted to stay true to this recipe to make sure we didn’t mess it up.

Hope you like these!
