Holiday Garlic Herb Rolls are a fun and festive way to put a twist on the traditional roll for your holiday dinners and a perfect way to let your little helpers get involved in the kitchen!
Christmas is this weekend! Holy cow. I haven’t been in the kitchen nearly as much as I planned to be but after I had strep, Julia got a pretty yucky cold, then she got better and I got a sinus infection + ear infection, and now Julia’s sick again. We’re been hit hard this season. We didn’t even get to go see Santa 🙁
HOLIDAY GARLIC HERB ROLLS
For that reason, I’ve been keeping things super simple and these rolls are perfect. I always keep Rhodes rolls in the freezer (and the cinnamon rolls – mmmmm) but these are just slightly jazzed up and perfect for a holiday meal.
I didn’t let Julia’s germy fingers help cut these rolls out (no offense, but a two year old with a runny nose sets my germophobia into overdrive – even my super cute two year old!) but I did save her the dough scraps to play with, which made her day.
I used 12 rolls with these and rolled them out but how many shaped rolls you end up with with depend on how large your cookie cutters are. I recommend using simple shapes because rolls don’t hold detail like a cookie might. But you can definitely tell that these were stars, snowmen, and gingerbread men.
Holiday Garlic Herb Rolls
- 12 Rhodes dinner rolls thawed but cold
- 3 Tb salted butter melted
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- flour for rolling
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Flour a clean work surface and lay out your 12 Rhodes dinner rolls.
- Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a large circle (or square, or rectangle). Shape doesn't matter as much as you want the dough to be about 1/4" thick.
- Use your favorite holiday cookie cutters (try to keep them similar in size) to cut out shapes. I used a star, a snowman, and a gingerbread man. Lay the cut-outs onto your prepared baking sheet.
- Bake the rolls for 10-12 minutes or until just golden.
- While the rolls are baking, melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl then stir in the garlic and parsley. Mix together.
- Immediately after removing the rolls from the oven (be careful, they're hot!), brush each with the butter mixture.
- If desired, sprinkle with additional parsley then let cool on the pan before moving to your dinner table.
