DIRECTIONS

  • OLD SCHOOL METHOD: combine 3/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
  • Heat the milk, water, and butter until warm, then add to the flour mixture.
  • Beat 2 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally.
  • Add 1/4 cup flour, beat 2 minutes at high speed.
  • Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a soft dough, knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Cover, let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape into balls. Place in a greased 8" pie pan. Cover and let rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes. Go to Step #9!
  • BREAD MACHINE METHOD: Place the ingredients in the order required by your bread machine. With mine, I have to proof the yeast first in the sugar and water for 10-15 minutes. After proofing, do a regular 1-lb dough cycle in your machine. Mine takes 90 minutes. (NOTE- I'd recommend using closer to 2 1/2-3 cups flour for the bread machine method as mine tends to produce runny dough time to time.).
  • When the dough cycle's finished, divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape into balls. Place them into a greased 8" pie pan.
  • Bake at 375F for 20 minutes or until set. Remove from the pan and brush with melted butter if desired, serve warm and immediately.
