1/2 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
1/2 cup honey
1 packet of yeast
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 ½ tsp. salt
5 cups flour
Combine the warm water, milk, honey, and yeast and set aside for about 10 minutes until foamy.
In a stand mixer with a dough hook, combine the yeast mixture, butter, salt and 5 cups of flour. Mix until the dough leaves the sides of the bowl and clings to the dough hook, about 5 minutes.
Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead a few times. Pinch off balls of dough and form into rolls. (pinching the seams on the underside to make the top smooth.)
Place the formed rolls into a well-buttered cast iron skillet, leaving space between each one. Let the rolls rise in a warm place for 2 hours, until doubled in size.
Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
Brush generously with butter and serve.
