1 packet dry active yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
Honey Cinnamon Butter:
4 tablespoons butter, softened and unsalted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon confectioners sugar
Place the yeast and warm water into a bowl or container, stir once, and let it rest.
Add the milk and buttermilk to a microwave-safe container and heat until warmed. It’s okay if the buttermilk separates at this point; it will not affect the recipe.
Stir 2 tablespoons of softened butter into the milk and buttermilk mixture until melted.
In a mixing bowl, combine the milk mixture, yeast, granulated sugar, salt, and 1 cup of flour. Beat on high with a dough hook until well combined and smooth.
Add the egg to the bowl and beat until well incorporated.
Slowly add the remaining flour a little at a time until the dough cleanly separates from the dough hook attachment in the mixer.
Flour the dough slightly and shape it into a ball in a well-greased large mixing bowl.
Cover the bowl and let the dough rest and rise for 1 hour.
Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut the dough into 12 even rectangular shapes.
Fold the ends of each rectangle under to form a roll shape and let them sit on a parchment or silicone mat-lined baking sheet to rise slightly for 20 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celsius).
Bake the rolls for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned on top.
Brush with melted butter on top if desired.
In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the cinnamon honey butter and mix until completely combined.
Serve the warm rolls with the honey cinnamon butter.
