Honey Butter Pull Apart Rolls

Pin It Now!

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.

Lovely, super soft, light layers.
One more picture, because they are truly drool-worthy.

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
  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. After doubled, punch down dough and lay on floured surface. 
  6. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  7. Roll dough out until about 20 inches by 12 inches.
  8. In a small bowl, combine butter, honey, and salt.  Brush dough with half of the butter mixture.
  9. 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.
  10. Brush with the remaining butter mixture.
  11. Let these rise until they are visibly puffier, about 20 minutes.
  12. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. 
  13. Serve warm.
