If you love honey and home-baked rolls, you're going to love these! The addition of the coarse salt makes these especially lovely.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the yeast, warm water, and the sugar and let the mixture sit until foamy (a few minutes). Add the warm milk and stir it together.
  2. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Add the honey, oil, salt, and eggs, then mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add 3 cups of the flour and mix to form a dough. Switch to the dough hook attachment and continue to kneads, slowly adding the remaining ½ cup of flour in small amounts until the dough becomes smooth and not sticky - this takes 6 to 7 minutes.
  4. Transfer the dough to a large bowl that has been lightly oiled. Flip the dough around in the bowl until it's lightly coated with oil. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place until it doubles in size (this takes 2 to 2½ hours).
  5. Place the risen dough onto a floured work surface and knead for approximately 1 minute. Divide the dough into a dozen equal pieces, shaping each one into a ball.
  6. Arrange the dough balls in a lightly greased 9-inch round baking dish. Cover and let the dough rise for another 30 minutes.
  7. Place the butter and honey in a saucepan and heat until the butter is melted and the honey is somewhat liquefied. Brush the tops of your risen dough balls with the honey/butter mixture and then sprinkle the top of each dough ball with coarse salt.
  8. Bake in a 375-degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep an eye on them-watch for the tops to turn brown.
