Servings 12 buns

Ingredients
  

  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter (can use vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (can use honey)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg

Instructions
 

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 1 1/2 cups flour with yeast.
  • Combine milk, butter, sugar, and salt, and heat (in microwave or stovetop) to 120 degrees.
  • Add warm liquids to flour and yeast mixture and mix for 2 minutes with dough hook attachment.
  • Add egg and mix to combine. Add enough additional flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead for 3-4 minutes. Place dough back in mixing bowl, and cover with a tea towel. Let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  • Turn dough out on to floured surface, and divide into 12 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball and then flatten slightly. Place on a greased baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap or towel to let rise for 45-60 minutes, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake buns for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Watch carefully to prevent over browning.
  • Remove from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack.
  • Extra buns can be frozen for later use.
