Ingredients: (makes 12 rolls)

¾ cup milk

2 1/4 cups flour

1 egg yolk

Step 3: Stir

Picture of Stir

In a large bowl of a stand mixer, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, and salt.

Pour water, egg yolk, and milk-butter mixture into the flour mixture. Make sure that the milk mixture is very warm. Stir into flour mix until sticky and wet.

Step 4: Knead

Replace mixer with a dough hook. Add the remaining 1/4 cup of flour carefully, kneading with dough hook constantly until the dough is wet but doesn’t stick to your hand. It should take all the flour. If it is still sticky, add more flour. Once dough is done, take the dough out of the bowl and hand knead it. Then grease the large bowl, and put the dough back in. Let rise in a warm place for 10 minutes.

Step 5: Roll Out

Roll dough out on a large flour surface into a 12x9 inch rectangle.

Step 6: Butter and Roll Up

Spread softened butter over rolled out dough evenly.

Roll dough up, starting at the 12 inch side, until it is a long log. This is very similar to cinnamon rolls. Cut out 12 even rolls from this long log. Place each roll in a greased muffin tin.

Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. After ten minutes of rising, preheat oven to 375 degrees; then continue with the other 20 minutes rising.

Step 7: Bake

It could be a dessert if you put some brown sugar and butter in the center, and some of that white frosting over the top.

Yeah! That's actually exactly how you'd make cinnamon rolls, too :D I have an instructables on that, in fact.
