–whole milk – sugar – active yeast – unsalted melted butter – pinch coarse salt

Add the 1 ½ cups hot milk, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and yeast to a standing mixer with the hook attachment. Whisk with a whisk until combined and let it sit for 4-6 minutes or when a raft forms.

Add the remaining sugar, 7 tablespoons of melted butter, and sea salt. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the flour in 4 or so batches until combined.

Add 2 eggs until mixed in, and then knead for 3-5 minutes. Cover and let rise until it has doubled in size for 60 minutes.

Punch down the dough and form 20 small golf ball-sized dough balls. Place 1” apart in a greased and parchment paper-lined cookie sheet tray or 12×18 baking pan.

Cover with a towel and let rise for 30 more minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining egg and 2 tablespoons of whole milk until combined.
