  1. ¼ cup warm water (105° to 115°)
  2. 2 (¼-ounce) packages active dry yeast
  3. 1½ cups warm half-and-half (105° to 115°)
  4. ½ cup brown butter*, melted
  5. 5 tablespoons sugar
  6. 2½ teaspoons salt
  7. 3 large eggs, divided
  8. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  9. 3 cups bread flour
  10. ¼ cup cultured buttermilk powder**
  11. 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary
  1. In a small bowl, combine water and yeast; let stand until foamy, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl, whisk together half-and-half, butter, sugar, salt, and 2 eggs. Add yeast mixture, whisking to combine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all-purpose flour, bread flour, cultured buttermilk powder, and rosemary. Add flour mixture to yeast mixture, one cup at a time, until soft dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface. Knead dough until elastic and smooth, about 8 to 10 minutes. Spray the inside of a bowl with cooking spray; place dough in bowl, and turn to coat. Cover bowl with plastic film sprayed with cooking spray. Let stand in a warm (85°) place, free from drafts, until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  3. Butter a 9 x 13 x 2-inch baking pan. On a lightly floured work surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut as many rounds from dough as possible, rerolling scraps no more than once.
  4. Shape dough rounds into small balls. Arrange dough balls in buttered pan. Cover pan with plastic wrap sprayed with cooking spray. Let stand in a warm (85°) place, free from drafts, until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, whisk remaining egg until smooth. Using a pastry brush, coat rolls evenly with egg. Bake until deep golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven; cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
  1. *In a medium saucepan with a heavy bottom, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook, watching closely, until butter foams and turns golden in color and has a nutty aroma, about 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately remove from heat, and strain through a fine-mesh sieve. Cool to room temperature.
  2. **Cultured buttermilk powder is pasteurized and homogenized milk that has been inoculated with a culture of lactic acid bacteria to simulate the naturally occurring bacteria in the old-fashioned product.
