  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 3 1/2 tsps dry, active yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water must be between 105f-115f
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp table salt


  • Grease your muffin tin and a medium-sized bowl with vegetable oil and set aside.
  • In a small saucepan stir the milk, butter, and sugar until melted over low-medium heat.
  • Transfer melted milk and butter to a measuring cup and insert a thermometer. Cool to about 100F-105F.
  • Pour buttery milk mixture into your stand mixer bowl.
  • Add the yeast and warm water measuring 105-115 degrees. Allow yeast to foam for 10 minutes. 
  • Once foamed, add two cups of flour and your salt to the stand mixer and mix using the dough hook for one minute on low speed. 
  • With the mixer still on low speed, add remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time. 
  • Knead on low for 2 more minutes. Dough should be towards the center of the bowl on the hook. It should feel slightly sticky to the touch.
  • Place dough in the vegetable oil greased bowl and flip to oil the top and bottom.
  • Add water to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for one minute to cream and warm, humid environment for your dough to rise. 
  • Place dough in microwave with a loose kitchen towel draped over the top of the bowl. Leave in there (do not turn on) for 15 minutes.
  • Once done rising, place dough on a lightly floured surface and pluck it into 12 balls. 
  • Using kitchen shears, cut each ball into three pieces, and put 3 pieces into each muffin tin slot.
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees f. 
  • Cover the muffin tin with your kitchen towel and place back in the microwave to rise for another 15 minutes.
  • Once done rising, remove towel and place the rolls in the oven for 9-12 minutes. Mine took exactly 9 minutes and turned a nice shade of golden brown. 
  • You can brush rolls with melted butter if you choose, or a blend of garlic powder and powdered parmesan cheese. Enjoy warm.
