I do-ed it!

Kelli, I just wanted you to see that I am not completely bread-challenged, although I have had more than my share of failed attempts. I made the cloverleaf shape, so as to distinguish myself from your signature knots or butterhorns. :) Chris, the kids, and the YW in my ward had good things to say about them. I followed your instructions in the Bradshaw fam cookbook this time, instead of following the BH&G recipe. Thanks for showing me the way to achieve really hot buns.

Kelli's Hot Buns

1 C. milk
1 heaping T. active dry yeast
1/4 C. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 C. butter, softened
3 1/2 C. all-purpose flour

Heat milk in micro so that it is warm to the touch, approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add yeast and sugar to milk, mix, and let sit for 10-15 minutes until bubbles form. To yeast mixture, add salt, beaten egg, and butter. Then add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing between each addition. Mix until dough cleans the sides of the bowl and forms a ball in the center. Remove the dough from the bowl, and knead for 4-5 minutes. Cover and let rise for 30-40 minutes. Shape, place on greased baking sheet 2-3 inches apart, cover, and let rise again for 30-40 minutes. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
