Beautiful Burger Buns

I found a new recipe to try for hamburger buns. I made them in the bread maker and they turned out wonderful!

Beautiful Burger Buns
King Arthur

3/4 To 1 Cup Luke Warm Water
2 tablespoons butter
1 large egg
3 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached
-All-Purpose Flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon instant yeast

Mix and knead all of the dough ingredients by hand, mixer, or bread machine to make a soft, smooth dough.
Cover the dough, and let it rise for 1 hour, or until it's doubled in bulk.

Gently deflate the dough, and divide it into 8 pieces. Shape each piece into a round 1" thick (more or less); flatten to about 3" across. Place the buns on a lightly greased baking sheet, cover, and let rise for about an hour, until very puffy.

If desired, brush buns with melted butter. Or brush lightly with egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water), and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake the buns in a preheated 375F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, till golden. Cool on a rack.
