Ingredients

  • 1 packet packet active dry yeast
  • 1 ¼ c. warm milk (about 105-110 degrees F)
  • c. granulated sugar
  • ¼ c. unsalted butter room temperature, (½ stick)
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 ½ - 4 c. all-purpose flour plus more for kneading
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter melted

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, add milk and sugar, sprinkle yeast over it.
  • Let the yeast set until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the yeast mixture to large mixing bowl. Then add ¼ cup butter, egg, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat the mixture on medium speed until batter is smooth.
  • Gradually add flour until soft ball of dough forms. Then increase speed on mixer to medium high and beat for 2-3 minutes longer. Dough should be tacky, but not sticky. If too sticky, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time.
  • Lightly grease large bowl and place dough in ball, turning once to coat. Cover the bowl with clean dish towel and set in warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.
  • Punch the dough down dough gently. Lightly flour work surface and turn dough out of bowl. Knead lightly if necessary.
  • Let set a few minutes while you prepare the baking sheets with a silicone mat or by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Roll dough out to 12x8 inch rectangle, ½ inch thick.
  • Cut the dough into even pieces using a sharp knife so you have 24-30 pieces of dough.
  • Transfer rolls to prepared baking sheets. Cover with dish towel and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.
  • About 20 minutes prior to rising being done, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place the rolls in the preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Bake rolls for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and brush with melted butter.

Notes

Why didn’t my dough rise?
One reason might be the yeast. Expired yeast won’t activate or if your milk was too hot or cold the yeast might not work properly.
The other thing to consider is the temperature of the room. If it’s cold the dough will take longer to rise, so it may need more time.
It’s been an hour and my dough is not doubled in size – what should I do?
Dough will take longer to rise in a colder room so just leave it until it’s doubled, which may take longer than an hour. Or, you can move it to a warmer spot to speed it up.
How long will the rolls keep?
The will keep for a few days at room temperature as long as they are stored in an airtight container.
Can you freeze the rolls?
You can, but I think they’re best when they’re made fresh. If you freeze them, be sure to store them in a freezer container.
