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 saucepan, add the milk, butter, sugar, and honey. Stir the mixture on a low heat until dissolved.
Once melted, take off the 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 the dough forms a ball.
Transfer the dough onto a floured surface and kneed for at least 5 minutes.
Place dough into an oiled bowl, cover, place in a warm place, and let rise for a least an hour.
After the dough has doubled in size, shape rolls on a floured surface.
Place rolls on a parchment paper lined pan, leaving space between each roll to rise. Cover rolls and let sit for an hour.
After the rolls have doubled in size, bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until the rolls are golden.
Top with butter, and serve while warm.
