  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour as needed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 Tablespoons instant yeast
  • Plus additional butter for brushing optional (about 2 Tablespoons)


  • Combine the water, butter and milk.
  • Place mixture in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium-heat and heat until the mixture reaches 95-115F. If it is hotter, allow it to cool slightly before proceeding with the recipe.
  • Stir together 3 1/2 cups of the flour, salt, sugar and instant yeast in a large bowl or the bowl of your stand mixer.
  • Add the warm liquid mixture and knead for 6-8 minutes until a soft ball forms and pulls clean away from the sides of the bowl. Add the additional 1 cup flour, as needed
  • Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap and a clean towel for 15 minutes.
  • Grease a 9” x 13” casserole dish and set aside.
  • Punch down the dough and divide into 12 equal sized balls of dough.
  • Place the balls of dough in the greased casserole dish and re-cover with plastic wrap and towel for another 15 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 400F
  • Remove plastic wrap and towel from the casserole dish and place the dish in the oven for 15 minutes, until puffed and golden brown on top.
  • If brushing with butter, brush halfway through baking with 1 Tablespoon of melted butter and then again after baking.
