Like with baking any breads, this does take some time since you do need to let the bread rise twice.
Begin the recipe by beating 6 Tbsp of softened butter with one package (2 Tbsp) of instant bread yeast and 1/4 cup sugar.
To this mixture, add 2 cups warm milk, 2 tsp of salt and 2 eggs. Once the wet ingredients are mixed, you want to slowly add 5 1/2 cups of flour. For the last 1/2 cup of flour, add it slowly and stop when the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl. You may not need all of the flour.
Put the dough into a bowl and let it rise for about an hour and a half. Make sure to cover with a damp towel.
Let the buns rise for another hour. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and after they have finished rising, place the buns in the oven to bake for about 14 minutes or until the buns get brown. These buns didn’t get the brown that I wanted. When the buns are ready, take them out of the oven and brush with some melted butter. Let them sit for just a couple of minutes to absorb the butter. Serve warm or let them cool before storing.
