  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups warm milk
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp salted butter softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp melted butter


  • -In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, butter, and eggs.
  • -Add in 5½ cups of flour. Employing a dough hook, turn the mixer on to a coffee speed. Once the flour starts to include into the dough, increase the speed to a medium range. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup of flour until the dough pulls off from the perimeters of the bowl.
  • -Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise 90 minutes.
  • -Lightly grease a baking sheet. Punch down the dough and form into 24 rolls. Place on the greased baking sheet in six rows of 4. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  • -Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake the rolls for 12 to 14 minutes, until lightly browned.
  • -Remove rolls from oven and brush with melted butter. Serve the rolls warm, or too cool, let rest on the pan for a quarter-hour before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Once cooled completely, store during a bag.
