30 Things to Make Before I Turn 30: Pioneer Woman's Buttered Rosemary Rolls

Mmmmmmm why didn't I make these melt in your mouth rolls the moment I first laid eyes on them? So much of my life has been wasted without them! They are so heavenly! My deprived husband, who never gets fresh from the oven rolls, ate 3/4 of the pan in one sitting. Pioneer Woman recommends making these if you have dinner guests and I concur that these rolls are most definitely guest-worthy. The hardest part is waiting for them to rise - it takes 3 hours! Oh and PLEASE heed my advice...after you take the skillet out of the oven, lay a pot holder over the handle because if you are like me, you will forget that it is still 400 degrees and spend the rest of the night icing your hand. YIKES! 

Pioneer Woman's Buttered Rosemary Rolls
Frozen, Unbaked dinner rolls (PW uses Rhodes and my grocery store happens to carry those too)
Melted butter, regular, salted (I used unsalted because that is all I had and they were still amazing!)
Fresh rosemary, coarsely chopped
Coarse sea salt

Spray an iron skillet with cooking spray or coat with olive oil. Place frozen rolls in the skillet, leaving plenty of room for rising. Cover and allow to rise for several hours (at least 3).
After rising, brush rolls with melted butter. Sprinkle on chopped rosemary and brush with additional butter. Sprinkle with sea salt.
Bake according to roll package directions (usually 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes) until rolls are a deep golden brown on top.
Brush again with butter and serve skillet on table. 


  1. I am hooked on fresh rosemary so I WILL be making these soon. They sound so good!

    What else did you serve them with?

  2. I made these delicious rolls last night for Chris and my brother! They are both roll connoisseurs. Both agreed hands down that these were the BEST rolls EVER! I was able to make great use of my rosemary plant with this recipe. They liked it so much, they requested to have them again tonight! Thanks for passing this recipe along!
