With Thanksgiving less than two weeks away, I decided it was high time to dust off a favorite old recipe and bring it back into the spotlight. As long as I can remember, simple dinner rolls have been my favorite food on any holiday table. I first encountered this recipe for honey yeast rolls in my early days of blogging and they instantly won my heart. I make them often throughout fall and winter to accompany soups and stews, and they are a certainty on our Thanksgiving menu. (Alongside this garlic herb compound butter – an absolute must.)
Over the years, I have tweaked the recipe slightly to ensure a better texture. Many readers have also asked whether these could be made in advance. Previously I had no good answer to that question. This weekend I experimented with a make-ahead strategy and it worked beautifully. So, I give you the new and improved version of my beloved honey yeast dinner rolls, now with a make-ahead option.
