Butter Buns for Baked Sandwiches

We like homemade buns for these easy baked sandwiches.  Of course, you can use purchased buns, but these Butter Buns are simple - I keep them on hand through the summer.
Simple Sandwich Buns
4 tablespoons butter -- (or oil)
16 Ounces Bread Flour -- 3 1/4 cups
2 1/8 teaspoons instant yeast -- 1 package
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1/2 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Water -- warm (120-125°)
Combine dry ingredients in mixer bowl. Warm water, milk and butter to 120-125°. Add egg to dough, gradually pour in liquid. Mix with paddle attachment 2 minutes on speed 2. Change to dough hook, and knead at speed 2 for 6 minutes. Cover and let rest 10 minutes in warm place. Shape into 10 hamburger buns, about 2 1/2 oz each, let rise 30 minutes or until doubled. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake until golden brown, about 20-22 minutes. Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
