"These are soooo addictive, and easy to make! Cooking time also includes rising time. Directions are written for a Kitchen Aid mixer however a bread machine using the dough cycle may be used, however remove before it starts the rising cycle."

Step by Step Method
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, instant yeast and salt. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix together the warm water, milk, melted butter and brown sugar. Stir until sugar until dissolved.
Add the liquid to flour and using dough hook mix on low speed until dough forms a ball. Increase speed to med-low and continue to knead for 3 minutes adjusting the water or flour as needed to form a smooth, firm, but slightly tacky ball of dough.
Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead by hand for 2 minutes. Roll the dough into a 2 foot long log and cut into 12 even pieces. Cover the dough with lightly oiled plastic wrap and a damp cloth and allow dough to rest for 10 minutes.
Shape the dough into rolls and place two inches apart on parchment paper. If desired, score the tops with an X. Cover with lightly oiled plastic wrap. Allow the rolls to rise for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Place cold water in large stockpot and add baking soda (do not add to hot water as it will boil over). Bring water to a boil.
Drop two rolls at a time into the boil water and boil for 30 seconds, turning once. Carefully remove the rolls with a slotted spoon, hold over pot and allow water to drain. Sprinkle with coarse salt and place on parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining rolls.
Place baking sheet on middle shelf of preheated oven. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes
