Decadence! From Sunset. The coconut milk makes a pudding on the bottom of these rolls. They would be perfect for breakfast or alongside fruit for Brunch. If you have a Kitchen Aid mixer you could use that instead of kneading by hand. The preparation time includes the time necessary to let the rolls rise.

- 3 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour, plus
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
