  • 1 T rapid rise yeast
  • 3 T sugar
  • ¾ t salt
  • 1 egg room temperature
  • 3 T butter softened
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2-3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 T butter melted to brush on after rolls are done


  • Heat milk to 110 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine yeast, sugar, salt, egg, butter, and milk.
  • Using the dough hook, on low speed, mix in 2 cups of flour. Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • Add additional flour, a quarter cup at a time, until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Knead the dough on medium speed for about 5 minutes or knead by hand for 10 minutes. Let the dough rest for a few minutes, it should be smooth and elastic.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Punch the dough down and divide into 12-15 equal sized balls. Place balls of dough into a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Brush with melted butter.
