I am hosting Thanksgiving this year and I’m all about pre-making everything I can so it’s easier on the day of. I’ve prepped two of my three side dishes, and now my rolls. Usually my family buys the Parker House Rolls, but this year I decided I was going to make them from scratch. I was pleasantly surprised that these homemade parker house rolls were so easy to make, and they came out amazing. Golden on the top, and fluffy on the inside with a hint of honey. And just like the rolls you buy at the store, they’re perfect for freezing.
1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 package active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6-7 cups all-purpose flour
In a sauce pan, add the milk, butter, sugar, and honey. Stir the mixture on a low heat until dissolved.
Once melted take off heat and let cool until lukewarm.
In a small bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, add the eggs, salt, yeast mixture, and milk mixture. Using the dough hook attachment on a stand mixer, begin to combine the mixture, gradually adding the flour until dough forms a ball.
Transfer the dough onto a floured surface, and kneed for at least 5 minutes.
Place dough into oiled bowl, cover, place in a warm place, and let rise for a least and hour.
After dough has doubled in size, shape rolls on floured surface.
Place rolls on parchment paper lined pan, leaving space between each roll to rise. Cover rolls and let sit for an hour.
After rolls have doubled in size, bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until rolls are golden.
Top with butter, and serve while warm.
