READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
YIELD: 2 dozen




  • In large bowl of electric mixer, combine water and milk powder, stir until dissolved.
  • Add yeast, then sugar, salt, butter, egg, and 2 cups flour.
  • Mix on low speed of mixer until ingredients are wet, then 2 minutes at medium speed.
  • Add 2 cups more flour; mix on low speed until ingredients are wet, then for 2 minutes as medium speed. (Dough will be getting stiff and remaining flour may need to be mixed in by hand).
  • Add about ½ cup flour and mix again, by hand or mixer.
  • Dough should be soft, not overly sticky, and not stiff.
  • (It is not necessary to use the entire amount of flour.)
  • Scrape dough off sides of bowl and pour about 1 T.vegetable oil all around the sides of the bowl so it is covered with oil.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise in warm place until double in size.
  • (My note here- I just sprayed a clean large bowl with vegetable spray and put my ball of dough in there, turning to cover the dough with the vegetable spray.).
  • After dough has risen, sprinkle cutting board or counter with flour and place dough on floured surface.
  • Roll out and cut rolls in desired shape and size.
  • Place on greased (or parchment lined) baking pans.
  • Let rise in warm place until rolls are double in size (about 1 to 1 ½ hours).
  • Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.
  • Brush with melted butter while hot.
