How do you take a soft, tender dinner roll and make it even more delicious? You dip it in butter. Yes, you read that right. Parker House Rolls are what regular dinner rolls want to be when they grow up.
These rolls are heavenly. They are decadent. When you want something truly special for your table, Parker House Rolls are the answer. Here’s how to make them, step-by-step.
I can’t take credit for inventing Parker House Rolls. That fine honor goes to the Parker House Hotel in Boston, who started serving the rolls in the late 1800’s and still serve them to this day.
Two things make these rolls special: First, they get dipped in melted butter before going on the baking sheet, and second, they are folded in half to give them their signature pocketed appearance. The result is a feather-light, incredibly tender roll that can either be torn apart for plate-mopping purposes or stuffed with butter and jam for snacking purposes. There’s no wrong way to do it.
