A Lion House Roll with Whipped Honey Butter

 

Lion House Rolls are probably my FAVORITE rolls of all time. They are kind of a legend here in Utah.

 

In fact, my husband and I were married at the Lion House and I made my mom run inside and buy a pack of rolls to snack on between the ceremony and taking pictures!
