1. Put the milk, butter and sugar into a small saucepan over low heat.
Warm until the butter is melted. Remove from heat and reserve.
2. In a 2-cup measuring cup, dissolve the yeast into the warm water.
Let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
3. Put the flour and salt into the work bowl of a food processor fitted
with the dough blade. Process for 10 seconds to sift ingredients.
4. With the machine running, add the cooled milk mixture, plus the egg,
slowly through the small feed tube. Process until a dough ball forms.
Continue processing to knead the dough, about 45 seconds.
5. Shape the dough into a smooth ball and transfer to a large mixing
bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Place in the oven in rack position 1.
Select Proof at 90°F for 45 minutes. Dough should be doubled in size
once time expires.
6. While dough is rising, lightly butter a 9-inch round baking pan7. Once dough has risen, divide into 12 equal pieces, about 2
ounces each.
8. Roll into smooth rounds and arrange in prepared round pan.
Cover with plastic wrap and return to oven in rack position 1.
Select Proof again at 90°F for 45 minutes.
9. Once ready to bake, remove pan from oven and brush the rolls
evenly with egg wash. Select Convection Bake at 375°F for
15 minutes. Once the oven is preheated, place prepared pan in
the oven. Rolls should be evenly browned on top and sound hollow
when tapped.
10. Remove rolls from pan and leave to cool on a rack for about
10 minutes before serving..
