These rolls are the perfect side to any main dish, especially ones with sauce. Personally, I like them just by themselves as a mid-day snack!

Buttery Flaky Biscuits.
- 8 ounces warm milk
- 1/4 cup white, granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 2 cups all-purpose or bread flour
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
Grease a large muffin tin. Set aside.
Add milk, sugar, yeast, flour, egg yolks, and salt to bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low for 1 minute, and change attachment to dough hook. Rest dough for 10-15 minutes.
Add 3/4 of the butter, and mix on low speed. Increase speed to medium, and mix until dough pulls away from sides of bowl.
Cover dough with plastic wrap, and allow to rise for about 1 hour until it has doubled in size. Remove dough from bowl once risen, and roll into a 12x12-inch square, about 1/2-inch thick. Melted remaining 1/4 of the butter, and brush on top of dough. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 12 strips. Stack strips into 2 stacks of 6 strips each. Place each piece in each cavity of muffin tin. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to rise for about 30-45 minutes or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Remove plastic wrap, and bake biscuits for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy warm!
