Roadhouse Style Biscuits

By Lisa VanWilliams

We recently went to a local Texas Roadhouse to amuse our children by letting them throw peanut shells on the floor with no repercussions. We had peanuts, salad, steak, and everyone loved the warm biscuit dinner rolls they serve with honey cinnamon butter when they sit you down at the table. I tried to make these at home so we could hide in the shelter of our own home and eat away the tray instead of asking for refills at the establishment - and my picky kids liked them so that bumps their food picks up to 10 items now. Win Win. Then it didn't help on the way out when I saw the grandma type lady behind the glass rolling out this 30 pound heap of dough from scratch and cutting out these scrumptious bites of heaven before my eyes. By the way, the fresh dough will have your house smelling amazing while it's rising and then again while it's baking in the oven. Here's to you Grandma!

Ingredients (made 20 rolls):

1 pack quick rise instant dry yeast
¼ cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
3 tablespoons melted cooled butter
¼ cup sugar
4 cups all purpose flour
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
Butter to baste on top when removed from oven

Honey Butter
½ stick room temp butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons powered sugar


Added my yeast and water to food processor and let it sit for ten minutes. Then add milk, butter, and sugar and mix it. Add in two cups of flour and then add in egg & salt. Add the other two cups of flour and mix well but do not over mix dough.

Drop the dough into a oiled bowl and cover with kitchen towel for an hour. After and hour dump the dough out onto and floured board and roll it out so it's ½ inch thick and cut into the desired shape you want.

Place the biscuits onto a parchment lined tray and then cover the dough with the towel to rise again. After another hour, they will double in size again and they are ready for baking!

Preheat oven to 350 and then bake these bad boys 10-15 minutes until they are golden brown. Baste with melted butter when you take them out of the oven. Then, serve them warm with the honey butter. Enjoy!
