1 c milk

1 c butter, divided

3 1/4 c bread flour

1/4 c sugar

1 tsp salt

4 tsp yeast

In a 2-cup glass measuring cup, heat milk and 1/2 c butter in the microwave for 1 minutes. Pour liquid into pan of bread machine. Microwave any remaining solid butter (from the 1/2 c) until melted and add to pan of bread machine. Add flour, sugar, and salt (in whatever order recommended by your bread machine). Make a well and add yeast. Set bread machine for dough cycle and start. When dough cycle is complete, turn dough onto floured surface. Punch down and let rest for 5 minutes. While dough is resting, melt remaining 1/2 c butter in a small bowl. Roll dough out to 1/2" thick and cut into diamond shapes with a pizza cutter. You should have about 48 pieces. Grab 4 pieces and pinch them together. Dip one side in melted butter, and turn and dip the other side in melted butter. Place a buttered side down in ungreased muffin pan. Repeat until all 12 muffin cups are filled. You should have some melted butter leftover. Let rise 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from muffin pan and brush with remaining melted butter. Makes 12.
