Step 1

Warm milk to 100-110 degrees being careful it is not hotter or the heat will kill the yeast

Step 2

Add yeast to milk in a warmed mixing bowl ( I pre warm the bowl so the bowl doesn't absorb all the heat and continues to allow the yeast to work)

Step 3

Melt butter and allow to cool till it is warm

Step 4

Add sugar and allow yeast to "foam" for a few minutes ( this is proofing the yeast and makes sure it is still active and will do it's job)

Step 5

Add eggs and mix in stand mixer on slow

Step 6

Gradually add cooled butter and one cup of flour at a time

Step 7

Mix well until dough is smooth and elastic.

Step 8

Allow mixer to do it's job and run for 5 minutes to "knead" the dough or hand knead for % minutes

Step 9

Place the dough in a warmed greased bowl and cover it with a tea towel and set in a warm spot to allow to rise.

Step 10

Let dough rise until it is doubled in size

Step 11

After dough has risen turn dough onto slightly floured board and cut into small pieces and shape into round balls

Step 12

Place on parchment paper in a baking sheet allowing space between to allow them to rise again

Step 13

Cover with a tea towel again and place back in a warm spot and allow to rise again until doubled in size. This can take from 30 minutes to two hours. Make sure you are patient and allow the to rise fully as this makes for the well known fluffy rolls.

Step 14

Place uncovered in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Step 15

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.
