2TablespoonsSalted Butter, Softened
1Large Egg, Slightly Beaten
2TablespoonsFlaked Sea Salt
2TablespoonsParsley, Chopped (Optional)
Use the vegetable oil and lightly oil a large mixing bowl. Set this bowl aside for later.
Add lukewarm water to a stand mixer’s large mixing bowl. Add yeast and sugar and mix well with a knife. Allow yeast to proof for 20 minutes, or until yeast mixture is foamy and raised.
Add flour, salt, egg, and the 2 tablespoons of softened butter and mix with a dough hook on low speed until all is combined and dough comes together.
Increase speed to medium and beat for 5 minutes.
Using a silicone spatula scrape dough from hook and mixing bowl and place dough in the prepared large bowl. The dough will be very sticky, but not slack. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow dough to rise until double, about 1 hour.
While dough is rising, heat the butter in a small ramekin on low power (2) in a microwave for 1 minute or until melted. Add honey and stir well.
Gently punch down the dough. Stretch and pat the dough into a rectangle. Using a pastry cutter or a knife, divide the dough into 24 equal sized pieces about 1 ounce each. Take each piece in hand and pinch the corners of the dough under each piece. Shape into a ball by continuing to roll the edges under and smoothing the dough until a round ball is achieved.
Place the shaped rolls in a parchment-lined 13 x 9 x 2” baking pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap and let rolls rise until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Midway through the last rising, preheat oven to 350°F and brush the rolls with half of the butter mixture and sprinkle them with the flaked sea salt.
Recover rolls with plastic wrap and let rolls continue to rise until the tops of the rolls are as tall as the height of the baking pan.
Remove plastic wrap from pan and bake rolls for 15 to 18 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Remove rolls from oven and drizzle rolls with the remaining butter mixture and cool slightly.
Plate and serve.
♥ A kitchen scale is a great tool to help portion the dough out evenly.
