  • Total Time: 2 hours 11 minutes
  • Yield: 24 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/4 cups milk, slightly warmed
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3 3/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 TB butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Into your bread machine pan, place the milk, egg, sugar, salt, bread flour and yeast.  Select the dough setting.
  2. When the cycle is complete, punch the dough down.  Create golf ball size dough balls and coat with melted butter.  Place onto buttered baking sheet.
  3. Cover and let rise for one hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Bake at 350° F for 9 to 11 minutes until just browning on the tops.

Notes

To let your dough balls rise in a warm place set your oven to 350° F for one minute.  Turn off the oven and then place the covered dough balls in the oven to rise.

Use a light colored pan to make the fluffiest rolls ever.

Can be made a day ahead.  Make sure to fully let the rolls cool before storing in an air tight container.
