Ingredients

1-1/4 cups milk, warmed
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 package yeast
1 egg, slightly beaten
3-1/2 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Instructions

Stir the warm milk, sugar, salt and butter together in a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle on the yeast, stir, and let stand to dissolve. Add the egg and 2 cups of the flour and beat vigorously for a minute or two, then add enough remaining flour to make a manageable dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 6 to 8 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Place in a large greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise until double in bulk. Punch down and form into fan tans or other shapes. Melt four tablespoons (1/2 stick or 1/4 cup) butter in a small saucepan. Divide the dough in half and roll each piece into a rectangle about 18 inches long, 11 inches wide and 1/8 inch thick. Brush with melted butter and cut each piece into seven strips each 1-1/2 inches wide. Stack the seven strips on top of one another. Place each small stack in a muffin tin. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise long enough to heat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown.
