Butterhorn Roll Recipe, Butterhorns



Every time my extended family gets together, you can bet this delicious Butterhorn roll recipe will be shared.ย  Butterhorns are a fairly simple yeast bread recipe with the added benefit that they have a beautiful presentation, so they make a perfect addition to everything from a casual brunch to a fancy five course dinner.

Trust me. One try of these Butterhorns, and you will see why it’s a family tradition in our home.

Some of our other favorites are the Easiest Ever Apple Pecan Coffee Cake (made with biscuits). This tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen, when in reality, it took minutes.


My most requested recipe – my Copy Cat Cinnabon Rolls. These just aren’t for Christmas morning any more. ๐Ÿ™‚

Enjoy your carb loading…these are all so worth it.


  1. These look great. I’m setting the goal to begin baking my own breads/rolls going into the new year. I had a recipe planned to do it for Thanksgiving and ran out of time. Looking forward to trying these for Christmas. Thanks for sharing Jen. Have a great weekend!!


  2. I’m not linking up, because I haven’t posted this recipe on my blog yet, but these are the BEST dinner rolls I’ve ever made!

    They call for a few slightly weird ingredients, but I was able to find a small amount of instant milk at WalMart and I just buy one package of instant mashed potatoes at a time and can get 4 batches of it. Plus those packs are less than $1! So it’s a good deal.

    These are incredible and I highly recommend them.


  3. Love the progressive dinner idea. Thanks for hosting, Jennifer!

  4. Oh my, these look absolutely fabulous. Making my mouth water as I type. I am new to your blog, but from what Im seeing, its somewhere I want to be…


  5. These look lovely – are they like a croissant at all? Also to freeze them, do you do it after they have been formed but not had the second proving?


  6. I just made these this morning and wow! I will never buy cresent rolls again! It was super easy and I had NO idea what I was doing!! ๐Ÿ˜› I think the flour bag exploded~ and while I was at it I made the big batch cinnamon rolls! my boyfriend actually giggled!! I cannot thank you enough for makeing a working mother of three feel like a real life betty crocker! we now have goodies and rolls for a few weeks and I spent NOTHING! Just used what I already had!!! Will read your blog often!! Thanks Sooooo Much!

  8. Is it ok to freeze just the dough? Also how long will it be good in the freezer?


    Jen Reply:

    @Megan, Megan – I have frozen the dough before. You will want to freeze them, but as they thaw, it will count as one of the “rises.” I can’t guarantee the exact freezer time, but I would think a month?
