  • Place 2 cups flour in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add yeast, salt, sugar and dry milk.
  • Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine water and egg and stir to blend.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • Pour water mixture into well.
  • Mix by hand, beating 150 strokes and frequently scraping bottom and sides of bowl.
  • Add 1/2 the melted butter and beat to incorporate.
  • Add remaining flour, about 1/3 cup at a time, beating to incorporate each addition.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Set dough in a warm, draft-free place such as oven with pan of hottest tap water on rack below.
  • Allow batter to rise until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  • Coat cups, bottoms and sides of a 12-cup muffin pan (or two small round pans) with butter-flavored vegetable shortening.
  • Punch down batter (batter will be extremely soft and sticky).
  • Drop by hand or spoonful into prepared muffin pan cups to make 12 rolls (if in pan, each roll touching the next).
  • Brush dough with 1/2 remaining melted butter.
  • Let rise, uncovered, in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in bulk, about 30 minutes.
  • In preheated 400-degree oven, bake rolls on middle rack 16-18 minutes.
  • Brush tops of cooked rolls with remaining melted butter.
  • Serve immediately.
