Cast Iron Skillet Parker House Rolls

1/2 cup warm water

1 cup warm milk

1/2 cup honey

1 packet of yeast

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 ½ tsp. salt

5 cups flour


Combine the warm water, milk, honey, and yeast and set aside for about 10 minutes until foamy.


In a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine the yeast mixture, butter, salt and 5 cups of flour.  Mix until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and clings to the dough hook, about 5 minutes.


Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead a few times.  Pinch off balls of dough and form into rolls.  (pinching the seams on the underside to make the top smooth.)


Place the formed rolls into a well-buttered cast iron skillet, leaving space between each one.  Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 2 hours, until doubled in size. 


Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. 


Brush generously with butter and serve.
