Snowflake Dinner Rolls


These snowflake rolls are the perfect addition to your holiday dinner table. I made each roll have a snowflake design, but you can pipe anything you want on the rolls; swirls, letters, Christmas trees - the possibilities are endless!

 These rolls make a great presentation, and they are super easy to make.  There is very little hands on time.  It just takes a few hours to let the frozen bread dough rise.  I really think you use any type of roll for this recipe since the festive part of the dish is the butter mixture that is piped on top.

Snowflake Dinner Rolls
(Printable Recipe)

12 Rhodes frozen bread roll dough
4 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp butter, softened
1 tsp hot water
1/4 tsp garlic powder (optional)

Lightly spray a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray.  Arrange 12 rolls in the pan.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size.

Once rolls have risen, preheat oven to 350.

Combine flour, butter, hot water and garlic powder.  Transfer to piping bag fitted with #4 tip.  Pipe snowflake design on top of each roll.  Place the rolls in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes to let the butter mixture cool off. (I thought my butter got too warm in my hand when I was piping the design on)

Bake for 20-25 minutes.

  1. Wow these look so good and you are so creative ! Just to make sure though, you pipe the butter snowflake BEFORE baking? It doesn't just melt off ????

  2. It says, "12 Rhodes frozen bread roll dough" -- do you mean 12 rolls from the package????
    Looks yummy!

  3. Denise - yes, pipe the butter mixture on the rolls before you bake it and it doesn't melt - it is really amazing!

  4. Cheryl - yes, use 12 Rhodes frozen dough balls

  5. wow, that's so cool, and cute!

  6. I love this idea! I wish I had a piping bag :(

  7. I saw your idea just in time to thaw the rolls and have them for dinner. We loved them! I didn't have a piping bag so I just used the good old ziploc bag trick, worked great. I'll definitely be making these again, thanks!

  8. Sorry to ask such a silly long does it usually take for them to rise? ;)

  9. Pam - it took probably 2-3 hours. They have to thaw and then rise. I put them in my oven on 100 degrees to help the process.

  10. Thank you :) Will have these on Christmas!
