These Bread Machine Butterhorn Rolls are a delicious and easy way to have hot, homemade rolls whenever you need them….and if you’re looking for the perfect addition to a holiday meal, look no further!
The best thing about this recipe for Bread Machine Butterhorn Rolls is that once you make the dough, you can freeze it. When you need rolls for dinner, you just pull out as many rolls as you need, let them thaw and rise, then bake and serve!
For Thanksgiving or Christmas, I like to make the dough a few days ahead of time and freeze it so that the day of our celebration, all I have to do is pull the rolls out of the freezer in the morning, place them on a baking sheet and let them sit until about 20 minutes before the meal. After that, I just pop them in the oven and bake until golden brown.
Hot, fresh rolls that didn’t come from the freezer section? These days, that’s a novelty!

- 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour

How to Make Bread Machine Butterhorn Rolls
Put first 9 ingredients in your bread machine according to your machine’s instructions. Use the dough setting and go do other things!
When the dough is ready and risen, divide it into two balls and roll each into a flat disk.
Using a small pizza cutter, cut each disk into 8 wedges (or if you would like to make smaller rolls…these are pretty large…create 4 smaller disks and cut each of them into 8 wedges). Brush the top of the dough with melted butter and roll it from the outside in, pressing the dough at the tip to seal.
Kids in the Kitchen Tip: My 5-year-old did rolled out the dough (with a little help), brushed the butter and rolled up the rolls…she loved helping and made this recipe even easier for me!
To freeze: place on a baking dish and place into the freezer until frozen then place into a plastic bag for storage.
To thaw and cook: Place desired number of rolls onto a baking sheet and leave in a warm, dry place to thaw and rise for about 5 hours. Then bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
To bake immediately: preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake until golden brown.
Brush tops of hot rolls with melted butter.
The original recipe can be found here at MoneySavingMom. I’ve halved it (which fits perfectly into our 2 lb. bread machine) and specified what type of flour we use. If you’re making the dough by hand and would like to make more rolls to freeze, use the original recipe!
