Texas Roadhouse copycat rolls?

So I saw a pin on Pinterest the other day that had a recipe for Texas roadhouse rolls. Well because I LOVE Texas Roadhouse and I LOVE their rolls and their yummy butter I decided to make them. And the best part about it was I had all of the ingredients!

After I let the dough rise, I followed the directions on shaping them and somehow mine turned out funky.  But, they were some of the best homemade rolls I have had. When we were eating them I didn't think they tasted too much like Texas Roadhouses rolls....but then I had a roll today and they tasted similar enough, but my butter tasted nothing like it and maybe that is why I didn't think it tasted like Texas Roadhouse rolls. I accidentally added too much honey and not enough butter. I will do better next time. Maybe once I perfect the butter it will be close enough to Texas Roadhouse rolls.

That's not all though. I decided to make some cinnamon rolls out of this dough. OH MAN!!!! Not to gloat or anything, but those were the BEST cinnamon rolls I have made yet. The best!! They were perfectly moist all around. So to those that don't know me very well and maybe even those that do know me very well, I have always struggled with making cinnamon rolls. For some reason they just never worked out for me. So when these were perfect I was so happy!!

Mmm...I was just thinking about it and I bet this dough would make some super yummy scones too! Yum!!!!

Next time I am going to make a bigger batch and freeze this dough for future meals so that I don't have to go through the process of making them everytime I want a cinnamon roll. It is quite the process making these rolls, but so worth it!!!

Here is the link to the recipe if any of you are interested!!

By the way, this is not a picture of my rolls. I took this picture from the website I got the recipe from. :)

I totally pinned the roll recipe and the butter recipe too. It looks so good! That will have to be one of the next things I make. Love Pinterest!
