  • 1 envelpoe RapidRise yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons butter


  • Place 3/4 cup flour, dry yeast,sugar and salt in a large bowl.  Place the milk, water and butter in a small saucepan and heat to 120 degrees. It'll be very warm but not hot.  Add the mixture in the pan to the flour mixture in your bowl. Beat for 2 minutes on medium speed. Scrape the bowl when necessary. 
    Add another 1/4 cup flour to the bowl and beat 2 minutes at high speed.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth , elastic and slightly tacky about 10 minutes.  Cover the dough and let rest for 10 minutes. 
    Divide the dough into 12 pieces, shape the dough pieces into balls. Place the dough balls in an 8 or 9 inch round greased baking pan.  Cover and let rise in a draft free place until doubled in size.
    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until done.  Remove form the oven and brush the tops with melted butter.
