Course: bread, Breakfast, dinner
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 40 minutes
Servings: 12 Rolls

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk 110F
  • 2 Tbsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 tsp Granulated sugar
  • 2 medium eggs Room temperature
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter Room temperature
  • 4 cups all purpose flour SPOON the flour directly into the measuring cup from the container/bag- DO NOT scoop the flour from the container or bag directly with the measuring cup.
  • 3 to 4 tbsp granulated sugar 
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp melted butter For the Glaze
  • 1 tbsp honey For the Glaze

Instructions

  • Mix the warm milk, yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a bowl or in your stand mixer. Whisk all the ingredients, cover and allow to sit for about 7 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, mix the flour, salt and 3 tablespoons of sugar in a bowl. (If you want the rolls to be sweeter, use 4 tablespoons instead of 3.) 
  • Once the yeast mixture is ready, add the eggs and the butter. Using the dough hook or the paddle attachment, beat on low speed for a few seconds, until all ingredients are combined. 
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, then add 1 cup of the flour mixture. Beat on medium speed for a few seconds, then add another cup of the flour mixture. Repeat with the remaining flour. DO NOT OVERWORK THE DOUGH. This process should take about 2-ish minutes. It will be complete once the dough comes together and pulls away from the side of the bowl. 
  • Knead the dough for 2 more minutes on low – medium speed.
  • At this point the dough will be ready for the first rise. 
  • Grease a large bowl with some olive oil and coat the dough with it. Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let it rise for at least 1 hour or until it doubles in size (it took me 1 hour). 
  • When the dough has doubled in size, punch it down. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape each one into a ball. .
  • Cover with plastic wrap and a kitchen towel and let the rolls rise for 1 hour and preheat the oven to 375F
  • Bake the rolls for about 20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown. 
  • As soon as the rolls are out of the oven, glaze them with butter and honey (or just butter!)
  • Enjoy them and Bon Profit!
     

Notes

These rolls will stay fresh in the fridge for 4 days. I love to warm them up in the microwave for about 15 to 20 seconds.
