I used my Instant Pot to proof my roll dough. If you have an Instant Pot with the yogurt setting give it a try.
If not no worries you can proof the dough in a greased bowl on the counter. It just takes about 30 minutes to an hour longer to do the traditional rising of the yeast rolls.

How To Make Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Full directions for this recipe are in the printable recipe card, featured at the bottom of the post.
Step 1: Start by working on your yeast mixture with the milk. Heat your milk to 105 degrees, and add a little sugar and yeast to allow it to bubble. This takes around 5 minutes.
Step 2: Once you have milk, water, butter, and a little sugar warm pour in the yeast and let sit. It needs to activate. It will bubble up.
Step 4: Punch down yeast roll dough and roll out on a floured surface. Cut, bake, butter, and devour.
How To Make Dough Rise
When working with yeast, it needs a warm environment. You will find these two methods are great for getting your dough to rise double in size.
Counter Methods for Dough
Once your dough is mixed up, take your dough ball and place it in a greased bowl.
Cover with a towel and let it sit for an hour. I find a warmer place in the home to let the dough rest.
Instant Pot Method For Dough
I use this method all the time. Simply mix up your dough as directed. Then place your dough ball in the bottom of the pot in your Instant Pot.
Now cover with a glass lid, and turn yogurt setting on. Make sure it is on low yogurt and let rise 30 minutes.
You can store these dinner rolls on the counter in an airtight container or sealable bag. Make sure that you store the cinnamon butter in the fridge, as it will store best that way.
Freezing Rolls – You can freeze these dinner rolls as well. Just allow to fully cool and then freeze for 3-4 months.
Reheating Rolls – Warm them up in the microwave. Thaw on the counter. Or wrap tightly in aluminum foil and heat in the oven. All methods work great.
That would be plain cruel if I gave you this roll recipe without the famous cinnamon butter! Don’t worry I have the cinnamon butter recipe in the recipe card below.
How to Make Cinnamon Butter
I used my stand mixer and whipped up softened butter with honey, cinnamon, and powdered sugar.
Crazy simple but yet so satisfying on every level. It’s safe to say my son loved the butter more than the rolls I think! This butter is great on any Instant pot roll, biscuit, etc.

- 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup sugar + 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 3 1/2 - 4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon butter (for buttering rolls after cooked)
- 1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- The first thing you will want to do is take a microwave safe bowl. Add in your milk, water, and dice up your 2 tablespoons of butter and put in the mixture.
- Put in the microwave for 20-30 second increments. You will want to heat the mixture to 100-105 degrees F. Use a thermometer to ensure you reach the right temperature.
- Once your mixture is warm, you will add in 1 teaspoon of granulated sugar, and your yeast. Sit the yeast mixture on the container, as it needs to rest for 5-10 minutes. Your yeast will begin to bubble, this is a great way to know your yeast is activated.
- Once the yeast bubbles up then pour into your KitchenAid Stand Mixer. Put the dough hook on. Add in your sugar, egg, salt, and then slowly add in your flour. You won't use all the flour possibly.
- You want to make sure the dough forms a ball and is not sticky to the touch where it comes off on your hand. Add flour a little at a time so you don't add too much and make your rolls dense.
- Once it is ready layout on a floured surface and knead for a few minutes. Then place the dough ball to rise.
- You can rise in a greased bowl on the counter for an hour or until it doubles in size. Or place in a greased Instant Pot with a glass lid. Then turn the yogurt setting on low for 30 minutes.
- Take your risen dough and punch it down and then roll out. Fold the dough in half and slice into lines. Then cut into squares for the rolls.
- Cover and let rise for 15 more minutes.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Bake 8-13 minutes or until the rolls are done. Depending on thickness will depend on how long it takes to cook.
- Then melt the 1 tablespoon of butter and then spread on the cooked rolls with a silicone brush.
- Now you can add all the ingredients for your cinnamon butter in a bowl or stand mixer. Whip it up until creamed and fully mixed.
- Now serve up warm Texas Roadhouse rolls with cinnamon butter for dinner or any other occasion you might be craving them.
Bloom yeast: Make sure to allow your yeast to bloom. The milk needs to be 105-110 degrees so it allows yeast to bloom without killing it.
Double the Recipe: You can double this recipe, just batch cook the rolls.
Freezing Rolls: Freeze dinner rolls you don't eat right away. Just store in the freezer for 3-4 months in an airtight container or freezer bag.
Warming Rolls Up: Warm up your Texas Roadhouse rolls by wrapping in aluminum foil and place in a 350 degree oven. Let it warm up for around 5-10 minutes. Remove and then serve with butter and enjoy, soft warm rolls!
