  1. 1 cup warm whole milk (about 110°)
  2. 2 (.25-oz) packages active dry yeast
  3. 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. 1/3 cup plus ¼ cup melted butter, divided
  5. 1/3 cup honey
  6. 2 large eggs
  7. 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  8. 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1½ cups for kneading
  9. Herb Butter, recipe follows
  1. In the bowl of a mixer combine warm milk, yeast, and sugar; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add 1/3 cup butter, honey, eggs, and salt, and mix at medium speed. Reduce speed to medium-low, and add flour, 1 cup at a time, until completely combined. On a floured surface turn out dough and knead until elastic, about 6 minutes.
  3. Spray a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer dough to bowl, rolling to coat top. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°.
  5. Spray 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with nonstick baking spray with flour. Divide dough into 18 equal balls; divide in three and roll each piece into a ball. Place three balls in each muffin cup. Let rise 30 minutes. Brush with remaining ¼ cup melted butter. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes. Serve with Herb Butter, if desired
