  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 Egg, beaten


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer add warm water and sprinkle yeast on top.  Add the rest of the ingredients except 1 cup of flour.  
  • With the dough hook, mix on low until all is combined.  Slowly add the last cup of flour and continue to mix for another few minutes until a dough forms. 
  • Lightly flour a clean surface and transfer dough to it. Dough will be slightly sticky.  Knead a couple of times and shape into a ball.  
  • Transfer ball into a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Let rise until doubled - approximately an hour.  
  • Grease a 9X13 pan.  Return dough to a floured surface and break into 15 evenly sized balls and place in pan.  Cover with kitchen towel and let rise another 45 minutes.  
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until tops are golden brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!
