Howdy –

Okay.  I’m not kidding.  Every time I serve these rolls, people just go whack. As much as they want to, they cannot stop eating the fabulous, feather-light Buttered Rosemary Rolls!  I don’t know the science behind the technique of brushing the rolls with butter AFTER they have risen, but I can tell you that trying to cheat and butter them while they are still frozen DOES NOT WORK….don’t even go there – I’ll save you the trouble.

I don’t always have fresh rosemary in the Winter months, so I’ve often used dried rosemary in this recipe.  It’s not nearly as pretty, but it does still work, so don’t sweat it.  And, under NO circumstances should you skip the sprinkling of salt….that is absolutely the finishing touch to this recipe.

 Easy Homemade Rolls – made right in your favorite cast iron skillet. I dare you to make these just once! You will never use any other recipe…they are that easy and delicious.  Scouts honor.

Course Bread
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Raising Time 45 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • Soft Buttered Rosemary Rolls
  • 15 frozen bread dough rolls
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
  • chopped fresh rosemary (dried rosemary leaves will work as well
  • kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Place all 15 rolls into a greased 12” cast iron skillet, leaving space between each of the frozen rolls. (If using a 10” cast iron skillet, 11 rolls fit just perfectly once they raise.)
  2. Cover the rolls in the skillet with a light dish towel, placing it into a warm, draft-free area of your kitchen, letting the rolls raise for 2 - 2 1/2 hours until “poofy and soft” and close to the top of the pan.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Brush the melted butter over the rolls; sprinkle the buttered rolls with the chopped rosemary. Sprinkle the rolls with a dusting of kosher salt.
  5. Bake, uncovered, on the center rack of the oven for 14-16 minutes, or until the rolls are golden brown on top. Serve at once, with lots of butter for slatherin’.

Recipe Notes

*Please Note: If you are using a 10" cast iron skillet, 11 frozen rolls works perfectly. 

I absolutely LOVE cooking with my cast iron skillet.  Here are a couple of my favorite cast iron recipes:
