Easy Dinner Rolls for Your Holiday Meal

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.

How to Make Snowflake Dinner Rolls

To make the rolls, place 12 frozen rolls in a cake pan and let rise. Mix together flour, butter, hot water, and garlic. Place the butter mixture into a piping bag fitted with a #4 tip and draw a snowflake on top of the rolls. Let the rolls chill for 5 or 10 minutes and then bake until golden brown.

What to Serve with Dinner Rolls

These rolls are the perfect accompaniment to your holiday meal. They also make a mean leftover turkey or ham sandwich. As I said, you can draw any design on top of the rolls – your team logo, a name, a Christmas tree, an Easter egg, bunny, anything goes! This is a great recipe to let the kids help decorate!

These rolls go with everything! Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with these festive rolls:

Snowflake Dinner Rolls – the perfect addition to your holiday dinner table. Rolls topped with a hand-drawn butter mixture made with butter, flour, and hot water. Can draw any design on the rolls. These rolls are great for any holiday, cookouts, and potluck. A great recipe to let the kids help with! #bread #christmas

Ingredients:

  • 12 Rhodes frozen bread roll dough
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 4 Tbsp butter softened
  • 1 tsp hot water
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder, optional

Instructions:

  • 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°F.
  • Combine flour, butter, hot water, and garlic powder.  Transfer the butter mixture to a 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. This is probably a dumb question, but do you think it’d work with the frozen Sister Schubert rolls? Thanks! Love all your fun recipes! Have soooooo many saved!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

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

  5. 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 ????
