Parker House Rolls

For the Parker House rolls we used our favorite, Half Baked Harvest’s recipe. She substitutes honey for sugar, and uses rapid rise yeast which saves some time.. I mean, who doesn’t want that?!

As someone who loves to experiment in the kitchen, I can honestly say that bread has always been v intimidating. BUT… these rolls are the PERFECT way to dip your toe in the bread pool – they taste and look mucho impressive but in reality, it’s not rocket science.


For the Rolls:

  • 3 1/4 – 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus more if needed
  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s® Rapid Rise Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup warm whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter at room temperature
  • 1 large egg at room temperature 
  • flaky sea salt for topping

For the Honey Butter

  • 6 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Steps from Half Baked Harvest

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, yeast, and salt. Add the warm milk, honey, the egg, and butter. Using the dough hook, mix until the flour is completely incorporated, about 4-5 minutes. If the dough seems sticky, add the remaining 1/4 cup of flour. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or up to a few hours at room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  • Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Turn out the dough, punch it down, and divide the dough in half. Roll each half to a 12-inch square, about 1/4-inch thick. Brush each square with honey butter, saving any leftover butter for serving. Cut each square of dough into 6 strips. Roll each strip into a coil and arrange seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
  • Cover the dish and let the rolls rise for about 30 minutes, until they’re puffy. Alternately, you can let the rolls sit in the fridge overnight.
  • Bake the rolls for 18-25 minutes, until they’re golden brown. 
  • To make the honey butter. Combine the butter and honey together in a small bowl.
