Step by Step Method
For the dough
Warm the milk until it is lukewarm
Add the milk to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook attachment
Or to a large bowl if kneading by hand.
Add the sugar to the milk
Then sprinkle the yeast on top.
Whisk the mixture and allow it to proof for about 5-10 minutes.
Once the yeast is activated,
Add the oil to the milk mixture
Then add the flour and salt.
If using a stand mixer
Start mixing the dough on the lowest setting.
Once the dough starts to form a ball, increase the speed to medium and knead for 6-8 minutes. Alternatively
Knead for 10-12 minutes by hand.
The dough is done when it is elastic, glossy, soft, and easily comes away from the sides of the bowl/surface.
Add the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a clean, warm, damp kitchen towel.
Let the dough rise for 1 1/2 hours,
Or until doubled in size.
Once the dough has risen and doubled in size, punch it down
And transfer it to a clean surface.
Form the dough into a rectangle, and then divide it into 8 equal-sized pieces
Form each piece into a ball by pinching the edges inward, and then on a flat surface, roll the dough into a ball shape.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Lightly grease a 9-inch round baking dish, preferably metal as opposed to glass or ceramic. Beat the egg for the egg wash.
Place each ball of dough in the baking dish 7 on outside 1 in center
With an equal distance between each ball.
Allow the dough to rise a second time for 30 minutes, or until the rolls have puffed up and filled the pan.
Brush the tops of the dough with the egg wash
Bake for 25 minutes, or until deep golden brown.
While the rolls bake
Make the garlic oil mixture.
Finely mince the garlic, then combine it with the oil, dill and parsley.
Brush the garlic-herb mixture over the rolls immediately after they come out of the oven.
Allow the rolls to cool for 15 minutes
No special items needed.
