Easy Buttery Rolls

I first made these for Thanksgiving, and my family loved them.
I thought I'd try them again today, and I've already eaten 2! They really are easy, and are oh, so tasty.

1.5 c. milk
3/4 c. + 1 T. sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 egg
1 T. salt
2 T. yeast
2 c. warm water
9-10 c. flour

Dissolve 2 T. yeast and 1 T. sugar in 2 c. warm water.  Set aside to proof.
Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl, melt butter.  Add milk and 3/4 c. sugar and heat for 1.5 minutes.
Place in mixer, and add 1 T. salt to milk mixture, then slowly add 1 beaten egg - beating quickly so that it doesn't cook.
Add 2 c. flour to continue to cool it back down, and then add yeast mixture and mix.
Continue to add an additional 7-8 cups of flour until dough is dense and sticky.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place to rise (approximately 1 hour) until doubled.

Cover working space with flour, and divide dough into 4 even balls.
Working with one ball at a time, using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a circle on a floured counter.
Spread with soft butter from edge to edge (optional)
Cut the dough into quarters using a pizza cutter.
Cut each quarter into 3 pieces.
Roll each triangle starting with the wide end.
Tuck the tail of the triangle under the roll and place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray/oil.  Approximately 3 rows of 8 should fit on one cookie sheet (2 balls of dough).
Place pans in warm area and allow to rise until they are touching and full in size (30-45 minutes).

Bake at 350* for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
Remove from oven and immediately run a stick of butter over the tops for a butter glaze.
