Honey (1/3 cup)
together in a small saucepan just until the honey melts and the milk becomes lukewarm. If the mixture overheats, wait until the milk cools down to lukewarm again.
Active Dry Yeast (1 Tbsp)

In a standing mixer with a paddle attachment, mix the
Butter (1/4 cup)
Salt (1 tsp)

All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cups)

All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups)
and knead for 3-5 minutes.
Place the dough in an oiled, medium to large bowl. Cover and place in a warm and dry place, and let rise for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Bake the rolls for 10-15 minutes. They are done once they just barely start to turn golden. You don't want to over bake. Immediately brush with additional melted butter.
