Tender Buttermilk Dinner Rolls

Suzanne Cowden


If you like the idea of freshly baked dinner rolls for the holidays but feel like there’s too much going on to pull it off, this Buttermilk Dinner Roll recipe is just what you need. Suzanne of Flour Arrangements shares this simple recipe that produces delicate, tender rolls just perfect for any holiday celebration.

Suzanne says, “People sometimes feel intimidated by yeasted dough, but this recipe is easy to make and relatively quick in terms of rising time. I mixed the dough in a large bowl with a wooden spoon before letting it rest right in the bowl for 30 minutes before shaping.”

If you know you’ll be too busy to prepare the rolls on the day of your big meal, you can par-bake them to reheat right before serving. Enjoy!



Suzanne focuses on food as centerpiece for both everyday routines and special occasions. Each recipe featured on Flour Arrangements, from simple loaves of bread to fondant decorated birthday cakes, comes with a story that blends life with cooking. Suzanne lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and daughters.
