1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted buttermelted and cooled
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
Additional butter, for brushing
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat with nonstick cooking spray or melted butter.
In a large bowl, combine water and yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, mix in butter, sugar and egg. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt with a wooden spoon until just combined. Form into a ball. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Split dough in half. Roll out each half on a floured surface to 12 inches diameter. Cut into 12 equal triangles. Starting with the widest end, roll up each triangle and place on prepared baking sheet. Cover baking pan with a clean, dry towel and let dough rise for 20-30 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake rolls until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately brush with butter.
Rolls will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
