Instead of the 4 tablespoons of regular butter this called for, I used 4 tablespoons of smart balance butter. It really helped to decrease the fat and calories! I also used skim milk instead of whole!

Recipe Ingredients for Delicious Dinner buns

1 cup skim milk, warmed (divided)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 large egg
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 tablespoon skim milk

Recipe Directions for Delicious Dinner buns

  1. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of warm milk with sugar and yeast.

  2. Let stand for about 10 minutes until frothy.

  3. In another bowl, combine the egg and remaining 1/2 cup of warm milk and the melted butter.

  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine flour and salt.

  5. Add the yeast mixture and egg mixture to the flour.

  6. With the mixer on low speed, start mixing, then increase the speed as flour is incorporated.

  7. Continue to mix for another 2 minutes or until the dough comes together.

  8. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.

  9. Form dough into a ball and place into a lightly greased large bowl.

  10. Cover with plastic wrap.

  12. Punch dough down and turn out onto a very lightly floured surface.

  13. Tear off pieces of dough and form 14 to 16 - 1 1/2 inch balls.

  14. Roll them between your hands to make a smooth ball.

  15. Place the dough balls in a buttered 8" x 8" pan or an 8" round pan, so the dough balls are touching each other.

  16. Cover with plastic wrap and then with a damp cloth or towel and let rest in a warm area for about 40 minute or until doubled.

  17. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  18. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and milk to make an egg wash.
