Sweet, soft, and delicious dinner rolls slathered with honey butter-The best dinner rolls ever! I have to say that I have quite an obsession with bread-bagles, rolls, sweet breads, hearty breads, you get the idea. I am pretty sure I could live off only bread for the rest of my life! Ok, so maybe not, but I am always the first one to raid the bread basket at a restaurant and always the first to ask for more bread. I am not very proud of that, but hey it’s what I love! 🙂 I know one thing is for sure, I could never go on a low carb diet-especially with these amazing dinner rolls hanging around. I have served these rolls every Thanksgiving and Christmas for the past several years and they are gobbled up very quickly. I have even sprinkled some cinnamon in the dough and on top of the butter to make them just a bit sweeter. Serve these at your next dinner party or on the holiday table and they will disappear as soon as you place them on the table-I promise you they are that good! 🙂
