Lightly golden brown on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside, these Butterhorns will become your family’s favorite go-to roll for all your soups, pastas, breakfasts, holiday events and much more.


Units Scale
  • 1 heaping T + 1 1/2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Medium Hot Water (hotter than lukewarm)
  • 1 1/2 cups Milk, hot
  • 1 1/2 sticks Land O Lakes Unsalted Sweet Butter, cubed
  • 1 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 3 Eggs, room temperature
  • 7 cups Wheat Montana Natural White All-Purpose Flour
  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray


  1. Yeast mixture: In a large glass measuring cup, add the yeast, 1 teaspoon sugar and hot water. Just let the mixture sit while prepping the other ingredients.
  2. Milk mixture: Heat the milk in the microwave until hot, but not boiling. Add the cubed butter to the hot milk to allow the butter to melt; stirring until well combined. Then add 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons sugar and the salt to the mixture.
  3. Beat: In a stand mixer, beat the 3 eggs. Add the milk mixture, 2 cups flour, and the yeast mixture slowly and mix until well combined.
  4. Mix: Continue to add and mix in 1 cup of flour at a time. Once the 7th cup has been added, mix on medium-low for a minute or so.
  5. Let rise: Spray a very large tupperware bowl and lid with cooking spray. Add the dough, seal the lid and put in a sink of warm water. Let it rise for 1 hour. 
  6. Roll the dough: To roll out the Butterhorns, sprinkle flour on a countertop or pastry sheet. Divide the batter into 3 sections, rolling out one at a time into a round, squarish shape. With a pizza cutter, cut the dough into triangles and roll them up. 
  7. Rise again: Spray two, dark cookie sheets with cooking spray, add the Butterhorns and cover with cloth. Let it rise another 20-25 minutes (turn the oven to 200° F and add the pans to the door of the open oven). 
  8. Bake: Bake at 400° F for 10-12 minutes.
  9. Yields: 45-55, depending on size.


  • Yeast: The yeast should get very high and poufy. If it does not, you need new yeast. 
  • Eggs: Add the eggs to a bowl of warm water and let sit until they reach room temperature.
