Now, you can make them in your crockpot! This is super simple. You should have most of these ingredients on hand at home, so you won’t have to go out to get anything. Once you make the dough, the rolls only take about an hour and a half to cook in the crockpot.

First, gather your ingredients. You’ll need one cup of lukewarm (very important to keep it lukewarm) milk, 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 teaspoons of salt, and 1 envelope of Instant Yeast.

First, add the yeast to lukewarm milk and cover for five minutes. Next, add dry ingredients to a mixing bowl, then add in the melted butter and honey. Once the dough is all mixed up, knead the dough in the bowl. You will know it is ready when the dough is coming off the sides of the bowl.

Cut into 12 even sections and roll those sections into balls. This is your classic dinner roll shape! Put parchment paper in the crockpot so the rolls don’t stick and put in the dough balls. Cook on high for about an hour and a half. You’ll know that they are done when the sides are brown.
