I was browsing Pinterest's Food and Drink category as I often do when I want to get a good drool on, and I came across a pin for Honey Butter Pull Apart Rolls from High Heels and Grills. I wanted to make some bread today, and after reading the recipe, I was sold! Within 15 minutes of finding the recipe, I was already making the dough. This recipe is easy to do, doesn't take too long, and the rolls are unbelievably light, soft, tender, tasty, and slightly sweet. I am addicted. I will make these for family gatherings, snacks, breakfasts, midnight munching, Christmas dinner...there is no event I wouldn't make these for. I modified this recipe very, very little, I mean, how do you mess with perfection?
Make these. Seriously. Make them.

(Slightly Adapted from High Heels and Grill's Honey Butter Pull Apart Rolls)
Makes 18 rolls
- 1-1/2 cups warm water
- 1 Tbsp. instant yeast
- 1 tsp. diastatic malt powder (optional)
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1-1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
- 3 Tbsp. honey
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- In a large bowl, mix together water, yeast, diastatic malt powder (optional), sugar, oil, salt, and 3-1/2 cups of flour. Using a spoon, your hands, or a stand mixer, mix until well combined (I just did this and the kneading by hand, worked great).
- Stir in more flour as need (1/4 cup at a time), until the dough has pulled away from the sides of the bowl, is no longer sticky, and you are able to work with it to knead it.
- Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until fairly smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes, adding a tablespoon of flour or two if needed, to keep it from sticking.
- Place the dough back in the large bowl it was mixed in, spraying some non stick spray or lightly oiling the bowl before returning the dough to it. Cover with a damp cloth; let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
- After doubled, punch down dough and lay on floured surface.
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Roll dough out until about 20 inches by 12 inches.
- In a small bowl, combine butter, honey, and salt. Brush dough with half of the butter mixture.
- With a pizza cutter, cut dough lengthwise into sixths and crosswise into twelfths. Make stacks of 4 dough squares and place each stack into a greased muffin tin cup.
- Brush with the remaining butter mixture.
- Let these rise until they are visibly puffier, about 20 minutes.
- Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve warm.
