 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (Red Star brand prefereed)
  • 1 teaspoon table salt, plus a pinch for the egg wash
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup whole milk, room temperature
  • 4 oz. (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cut into 16 pieces, softened
  • 1 large egg, for egg wash


In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt on low speed until well combined. Add the eggs and the milk and mix on low speed. When the dough starts to clump together, remove the paddle attachment and attach the dough hook. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes until it is firm and elastic, about 2 minutes more.

With the mixer on medium-low speed, add half of the butter, a few pieces at a time. After all the butter has been added, increase speed to medium and mix for 4 minutes, until the dough is smooth, soft and shiny.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface. Knead it by hand a few times and then form it into a ball Cover loosely with plastic and let the dough rise in a warm spot until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
