Quick rise easy yeast rolls are the perfect go-to dinner roll recipe! This pull apart rolls recipe uses rapid rising yeast, so the rolls only have one 20 minute rise time. Quick, easy, and delicious!
- 1.25 Tablespoons rapid rise yeast
- 7 ounces warm water
- .25 cup honey
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the rapid rise yeast and warm water. Let it activate for 5 minutes until bubbly. Stir in the honey.
On low speed, add 4 Tablespoons melted butter, salt, and egg. Slowly add the flour one cup at a time until just barely incorporated. Remove paddle attachment and insert dough hook, if you have one. Otherwise, continue mixing with the paddle attachment. Mix until the dough pulls away from the sides of the mixing bowl. Add more flour if dough is still too sticky.
Using a bench scraper or knife, portion the dough into 12 equal pieces. Form the rolls into desired shape and arrange them into a cast iron skillet. Cover skillet with a kitchen towel and allow them to rise approximately 20 minutes, or until doubled in size. Brush the unbaked rolls with 1 Tablespoon melted butter.
Bake for 25 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with more melted butter, if desired.
