Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1  1⁄4-ounce package active dry yeast
  • 1 1⁄3 cups milk, heated to 115°
  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 1⁄4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Canola oil, for greasing
  • 3 teaspoons sesame seeds


Step 01

In the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle, stir together yeast, milk, and 1 1⁄2 tsp. sugar; let foam. Stir in remaining sugar, flour, salt, and egg. Mix on low speed until dough forms. Replace paddle with dough hook; add butter; knead on medium-high speed until dough pulls away from sides of bowl, about 8 minutes. Transfer dough to an oiled bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Let rest in a warm place until doubled in size, about 2 hours.

Step 02

Heat oven to 400°. Divide dough into 12 portions; shape each into a tight ball. Place balls on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Lightly brush balls with oil; cover loosely with plastic wrap. Let rise for 1 1⁄2 hours.

Step 03

Uncover dough and, using a spray bottle filled with water, moisten dough; sprinkle each ball with 1⁄4 tsp. sesame seeds. Bake, rotating once, until golden brown, 18–20 minutes. Let cool.
