Freezer Dinner Rolls with Cinnamon Vanilla Honey Butter

Simple and Convenient Rhodes Meal Size Freezer Dinner Rolls slathered with homemade Cinnamon-Vanilla Honey Butter. 🍯
 
Raise your hand if you love fresh, hot, fluffy dinner rolls on your holiday table? I know I do and my family enjoys fresh rolls just as much. The only problem for me is most times I forget to make the yeast roll dough. That's where these Freezer Dinner Roll Pans come into play. 

I used my favorite Rhodes Frozen Yeast Dinner Rolls and a few of my favorite freezer pans to make simple convenient meal size freezer rolls. I know what you're thinking..... Rhodes dinner rolls are already frozen and convenient, so what's so special about this method? 

Well, let me tell you this make ahead method is simple, convenient, and makes perfectly portioned grab and go pan rolls. I like to use my favorite round 9 inch disposable baking pans with lids from my local Dollar Tree. I can get three pans with lids for just $1 and they're the perfect size for dinner rolls. 

Once assembled all I have to do is grab a pan of rolls out of the freezer, place them in a warm place to thaw, rise and bake. I love having pre assembled freezer pans at my fingertips.These Rhodes Freezer Dinner Roll Pans make having fresh bread for dinner or holidays quick and easy. I always make sure to have a batch of  my favorite Cinnamon-Vanilla Honey Butter on hand in my refrigerator. 

This delicious flavored butter is perfect to brush on baked dinner rolls or slathered inside the rolls after they're baked and still warm. This cinnamon-vanilla honey, butter adds the perfect touch of cinnamon and honey flavor to these dinner rolls. Here's how I make my freezer pan rolls. 

This is what you'll need: 24 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls, 3 - 9 inch disposable aluminum pans with lids, sharpie pen, non stick baking spray, honey, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract, real butter. 

Spray three disposable round pans with non stick baking spray. 

Remove 24 Rhodes dinners rolls and arrange 8 dinner rolls per pan. 


Add the lid to each pan, crimp edges, and write the date and baking temp on each lid. Place the pans in the freezer until ready to use. On the day you want to serve and bake the rolls,  remove one or more pans from the freezer. 



Spray a piece of plastic wrap with non stick baking spray and cover the rolls. Place the rolls in a warm place (for me that is the oven) and let rise until double in size (about 4 hours). I did the speed rise method (see directions at the end of the recipe) so I didn't cover the rolls. 

When the rolls have risen brush Preheat oven to 350 degrees and brush the risen rolls lightly with and egg white (to make the rolls shine).   


Place the rolls in preheated oven and bake for  15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown. As soon as the rolls come out of the oven brush them with a bit of the cinnamon-vanilla honey butter. 

Serve warm with additional whipped cinnamon-vanilla honey butter spread.

Speed Rise Method: Preheat oven to 170-200 degrees and then shut off the oven. Boil 2-3 cups of water and add to a shallow pan or bowl and place on the lowest rack in your oven. Place rolls in oven on the top rack and let rise until double in size (about 1 1/2 hours). Watch the rolls closely so they don't rise too high. Brush the rolls with an egg white.

Fantastic! Love the idea of preparing ahead of time and baking when needed.
Hubby will love the cinnamon honey butter. Wondering tho; what brand of honey do you use? Hubby really hasn't found a good tasting honey yet. He always liked SueBee honey but no long can buy it in stores down here which by the way is made in Iowa. I just may have to break down and order some SueBee honey for him.
Also; I have learned the hard way; have your egg white at room temperature Before brushing onto rolls
Thanks Tina

I apologize as I spotted your brand of honey.
Don't know why I didn't spot it the first time around. Too early in the morning I guess and just didn't have my usually cups of coffee yet.

No Problem Colleen. I was going to comment and let you know and then I saw the photo as well. I guess it is too early. Have a wonderful day and I hope you like the roll idea and the cinnamon vanilla honey butter. <3

What a clever kitchen shortcut! I love being able to take products and turn them into something that is useful! I am going to have to make that delicious cinnamon vanilla honey butter and give this a try! Rhodes frozen rolls are the best!

I think that dinner rolls are one of the best dinner companions out there. Aside from anything potato, dinner rolls are my favorite side. I often serve them before dinner with some whipped butter.

This sounds amazing. Makes me think about my childhood. My grandmother always had fresh rolls in her kitchen and some kind of buttery spread for them.

Yum, these look delicious and I'm sure your cinnamon honey butter adds lots of flavor! During the holidays my mom always made us fresh rolls and the aroma would seep throughout the whole house. She would make us fresh jam with them!

That butter looks delicious! And of course you have to have some type of rolls...it wouldn't be the holidays w/out it! I think we may have to try out some of that cinnamon honey butter for ours next time. :)

These rolls do look so delicious. I have made rolls a lot like this when I was a kid. They were a comfort food for me. but when it comes to the butter, my mouth is salivating right now. I will have to try to make this at home and see what my daughter thinks. She is my biggest food critic.
