1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Generously butter a 9" pie plate (make 9 rolls) or 8x8" square baking dish (makes 8 rolls).
Making the tangzhong
1. Add the water, flour, and milk to a saucepan over medium-high heat.
2. Whisk until a thick paste-like texture, about 4-5 minutes.
3. Remove from heat to cool.
Preparing the dough
1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
2. Add the warm milk, egg, and tangzhong.
3. Use the hook attachment to knead the dough for 2 minutes.
4. While kneading on medium speed, add the cubed butter one tablespoon at a time.
5. Knead another 2-3 minutes, until a smooth and pliable dough.
6. Use the windowpane test to check if it's ready: Stretch a small piece of dough as thin as you can until you can see a source of light behind it without it breaking.
7. Roll the dough into a tight bowl and place in a greased bowl.
8. Cover to rise in a warm environment for 1-2 hours, doubled in size.
Shaping and baking the rolls
1. Punch down the down and roll unto 8-9 individual dinner rolls.
2. Place in your prepared pan.
3. Cover to rise 1 hour, until doubled in size.
4. Brush with melted butter, olive oil, or an egg yolk.
5. Garnish with flaky sea salt.
6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
7. Let cool at least 5 minutes before enjoying!
