  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoon butter unsalted
  • 3/4 cup water hot
  • 4 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast


  • Combine the milk and butter in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes until the butter melts. Stir.
  • To the bowl of your mixer add the milk/butter mixture and hot water. Add the sugar, salt, 2 cups of the flour, and the yeast. Turn the mixer on and mix until well combined.
  • Keep adding 1 cup of flour at a time. You've added enough flour when the dough easily comes clean from the side of the bowl. Mix for 5 minutes on medium speed.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rest for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 170F° and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan with butter.
  • Spray your work surface with a bit of cooking spray. Transfer the dough to your work surface. Cut the dough in 12 equal pieces of dough. Gently roll each piece into a ball, and place them in the prepared baking pan. You can also roll out each piece of dough and roll them up jelly roll style, as seen in the pictures.
  • Transfer the pan to the preheat oven and let the rolls rise for about 20 to 30 minutes until doubled in size.
  • Leave the pan in the oven and turn the heat up to 350 F degrees. Bake for 15 minutes or until he rolls are golden brown.
  • Brush the rolls with a little butter and serve warm.


  1. Store leftover rolls in a plastic bag or airtight container for up to 3 days. These can be stored in the freezer as well (up to 3 months) for a longer shelf life.
