  • 1 1/2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Cut into pieces plus extra for brushing top of rolls
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Package Active dry yeast
  • 1/2 Cup Warm water
  • 3 Large Eggs ,lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt
  • 6 Cups All-purpose flour


  • In a small saucepan bring milk to a simmer. Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and sugar. Let cool. Dissolve yeast in warm water and let sit until it activates and becomes foamy.(About 5 minutes) Combine milk mixture, eggs, yeast, salt, and 1/2 of the flour in a mixer with the dough hook attachment. Mix until smooth. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, and stir until a smooth ball forms.
  • Remove from the bowl and knead by hand on a floured surface for about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 60 to 70 minutes.
  • On a floured surface, punch down the dough and shape into round balls. (I like to form a log with the dough first and then cut 24 evenly sized pieces. Then I roll into a round ball)  Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Cover again and let rise until doubled, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven 350 degrees F. while they are rising. 
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush with melted butter before serving.
