1/2 cup milk

6 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter, divided

Warm water (105°F to 115°F)

1/2 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon salt

2 (1/4-ounce) packages active dry yeast

5 to 5 1/2 cups bread flour

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Place milk and 4 tablespoons butter into 2-cup glass measuring cup. Microwave 1 1/2 minutes. Add enough warm water to measure 2 cups.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar, egg and salt in large bowl; mix well. Add milk mixture; mix well. Stir in yeast; let stand 2 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Add 3 cups flour. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth and elastic. Add 2 cups flour. Mix dough with hook or stir in with wooden spoon until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour with wooden spoon to make dough easy to handle.

  4. STEP 4

    Place dough into greased bowl. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter; brush top of dough. Reserve remaining melted butter. Cover; let rise 45 minutes or until double in size. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)

  5. STEP 5

    Punch down dough; divide in half. Shape each half on lightly floured surface into 12 buns. Place buns onto 2 greased (15x10x1-inch) baking pans. Brush with reserved melted butter. Cover; let rise 1 hour or until double in size.

  6. STEP 6

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  7. STEP 7

    Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan immediately. Brush buns with reserved melted butter, if desired.
