Epic baking success! Texas Roadhouse rolls!

You will need -

2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
1/4 cup lukewarm water
1 cup lukewarm milk
3 tablespoons melted butter, slightly cooled
1/4 cup sugar
4 cups flour, divided
1 egg
1 teaspoon salt
extra butter, for basting rolls

What to do -

Combine yeast and water in bowl of stand mixer.
Let sit for 10 minutes.

Add milk, butter, and sugar. 
Combine using paddle attachment.
Add 1 1/2 cups of flour and mix until combined.
Add egg and salt and mix well.

Switch to dough hook and add remaining 2 1/2 cups of flour.
Continue mixing for 5 minutes.
Dough should be smooth.

Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with a towel,
and put in a warm place to rise for one hour.
Spread dough out on a floured surface and shape into a square about an inch thick.
Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 18 squares and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

Let rolls rise 30-45 minutes longer and then bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
Take rolls out, baste with butter and put under broiler for about a minute to brown tops of rolls.
Remove from oven and baste one (or two!) more times with butter.

(Three were consumed at my house before I even got them to the table!)
