Diana Murphy-Owen


3 ½ cups Flour
¼ cup Sugar
¼ cup Butter, softened
1 tsp Salt
2 ¼ tsp yeast
¼ cup very warm water
¾ cup very warm milk
1 large egg
½ cup Butter, melted

Mix 2 ½ cups of flour, sugar, butter, salt, and yeast in large bowl. Add warm water, milk, and egg. Mix on low speed for 1 minute, then stir in enough of the remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle. Knead in mixer for 5 minutes, or by hand for 7-10 minutes, until dough is smooth and springy. Place dough in a greased bowl, then cover it and allow it to rise in a warm place until double. (I like to heat my oven to its lowest temperature, then turn it off and put the bowl of dough inside the oven along with a small pan of boiling water to raise the humidity. The dough raises much faster this way!)
Melt remaining butter. Pour ½ of it into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish and spread it across the bottom.
Roll out dough and cut into circles, dipping both sides in remaining butter and folding into a half circle before placing each roll into the prepared baking dish. (Melt more butter if needed—make them ultra-buttery for the best reviews!)
Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes.
